Inline won't work for your situation as you have found out.

 

There's a discussion here

And as far as I know for ePub you'd have to define a background image in the CSS.

@James Gifford—NitroPress would have a much better idea than I do.

Avoid images behind text if you publish EPUBs.

Willi and Eugene are right. You cannot use a background image in a reflowable EPUB. It will not work (either from any ID formatting or CSS commands) in any standard EPUB reader, or Kindle.

 

You can apply a background color, in CSS at least, that will show up on Kindle and Thorium Reader, but not in some other EPUB readers.
