This is the best example I can get of what I wish to achieve:
Now, there is a main background which is a light grey with a second white background on top of it.
I can only assume this is done using CSS.
I have had a go at doing something like this but can't!
This particular website also shows some back ground at the top, but I only really want to know how to show it at the sides.
I've tried using div tags then adding a margin but it's hard to know how much of a margin to have, plus this means there has to be text for the background colour to show for some reason.
I want to make websites by having a header and everything on the outside of the header to be a different colour. I can do this using frames or AP divs but...it's hardly good practice
