    Question Background tiling with a additional border.

    Hi everyone!

    Here is my mini-delemma; I have a page I am designing; I have a image I am using as a background. I also want to use another image to create a border on the side using the repeat-y function.

    I attempted to us a Style Sheet in Dreamweaver but it won't do the repeat-y tile over the existing background.

    I have seen other sites do this and I don't want to make a frameset either just to do that. What do you guys suggest?

    If you are not opposed to using tables, set them for 100% height, set a column on the left with that additional background in it and don't forget to insert an empty pix (transparent.gif, ) in it for the background to show.

    (Gone to hide from no-tables folks).

    H*ll, what I told you wouldn't work in N4. Hold on, if you care.

    what I meant was something like

    <body background="image1">
    <table width="100%" border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>
    <tr>
    <td background="image2"><img src="transparent.gif"></td>
    <td></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </body>

    but it doesn't work in NS4 - though you can add a color to the left column and it will show. Otherwise it works fine in IE and later NS.

    I'm sure someone will have a better idea.
