    Question about converting a table with graphics.

    hello,
    I am still new to CSS and i would like to convert some pages that i have made to use CSS instead of tables. In my tables i have graphics that give it rounded courners, which im confused to how it should be done properly. Should I use absolute positioning for the graphics? Could someone show a simular example of a table with rounded courners? Any help would be appreciated.

    here one of the tables i would like to convert to CSS:

    I'm also new to CSS so I am grateful for the practice.

    lavalamp, I can't thank you enough, now i have a better grasp of how to do that stuff with CSS. Sometimes I just need a kick in the rear to get me going.

    Coincidentally, earlier today, I tried to convert my index page of my website from tables to css.
    I say tried because it doesn't work in netscape, I think netscape puts a transparent border around hr and img tags that I don't know how to get rid of, so I'm stuck.

    I've been messing around with it today and I improved it so that it doesn't use any images and can be easily resized just by changing a couple of numbers, it's a bit more code but it takes up only 3.3Kb rather than rather than over 9Kb (including images) that the other one took up.

    Hey again, I know that I've already beat this thing to death but I had the script validated on the w3c site and it passed for strict html. If you wanna dl it you can, I don't blame you if you can't be arsed.
