Creating a watermark in Abiword

I have recently installed Xubuntu and am giving it a try at home. One of the children was using Abiword to do a paper and wanted a "watermark" like Microsoft Word has. Using new or different software is always frustrating. For example, moving to Word 2007 was most frustrating. Unfortunately, there is no watermark in Abiword. Instead, it is called a "Page Background" which is found under the "Format" menu. Arguably, calling it a watermark is not correct but it is what we are used to calling the background image. Doing a Google search for "abiword watermark" didn't find anything useful. Hopefully this simple posting will make it easier for the next guy.
