    resolved [RESOLVED] Double dotted border in css

    Hi

    I want to create a css style that can create a double dotted border for many images on my website. I have attached an example for what I would like. All images will be on a black background.

    My images are going to vary in size, so it the css needs to be flexible.

    Any help much appreciated!

    Thanks
    Leigh

    I cant seem to get it to work - this is what i have done so far -


    STYLE:

    .dottedImage {
    width: 553px;
    float:left;
    }

    .dotTop {
    background-image:url(images/brdPinkDots-top.gif);
    background-repeat:repeat-x;
    width: 553px;
    margin:0px;
    float:left;
    }

    .dotSide {
    background-image:url(images/brdPinkDots-side.gif);
    background-repeat:repeat-y;
    width: 3px;
    float:left;
    }

    .dotImage {
    width: 547px;
    float:left;
    }



    -----------------------------------

    HTML -

    <div class="dottedImage">
    <div class="dotTop"></div>
    <div class="dotSide"></div>
    <div class="dottedImage"><img name="" src="" width="547" height="363" alt="" /></div>
    <div class="dotTop"></div>
    </div>

    <style type="text/css">
    body {
        background-color:#000;
     }
    img {
        border:1px dotted #fff;
        display:block;
     }
    span {
        border:1px dotted #fff;
        padding:3px;
        float:left;
     }
    </style>

    Sorry - this is the HTML code i have -

    <div class="dottedImage">
    <div class="dotTop"></div>
    <div class="dotSide"></div>
    <div class="dotImage"><img name="" src="" width="547" height="363" alt="" /></div>
    <div class="dotSide"></div>
    <div class="dotTop"></div>

    Its almost working, but i cant get the sides to go as long as the image.
