Background tiling with a additional border.
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).
Okay..thanks Daria..I will try that.
Hey...wait a sec! What do you mean inserting an empty pic or transparent gif??
H*ll, what I told you wouldn't work in N4. Hold on, if you care.
what I meant was something like
<table width="100%" border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>
<td background="image2"><img src="transparent.gif"></td>
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.
