Hi, im designing a new website, and i dont have any training into soft as dreamweaver or expressions webg, but i use it as try and error. Anyway, i want to know how can i make a background for my site which can work on different resolutions and also something that works like Kat's website.

I was thinking about making the background on photoshop which includes some graphics at the sides and a "black zone" were tge tables will lay. Hope i make my self clear, my english isnt good at all and dont know the exact words used for web designing.

Hope someone can give me some ideas about it.

Thanks
Jc

i think ive been inspired lol. if i install a background image and give the table a different collor, i think i could make it work right? Also how can i set the background to keep its original resolution on different monitors?

On Kat's website, the main page background is set using CSS:

body {

	background-color: #000000;

	background-image: url(images/page_bg.jpg);

	background-position: top center;

	background-attachment: fixed;

	background-repeat: no-repeat;

}

Background image: http://www.lepermess...ges/page_bg.jpg

There is also a wrapper div that contains the background behind the actual page content:

#wrapper {

	text-align: left;

	width: 900px;

	margin-left: auto;

	margin-right: auto;

	border: 2px solid #000000;

	background-color: #0d3864;

	margin-top: 20px;

	margin-bottom: 20px;

	color: #FFFFFF;

}

The basic HTML for the layout looks like this:

<html>

	<head>

		<title>My Website</title>

		<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" title="" href="stylesheet.css">

	</head>

	<body>

		<div id="wrapper">

			Page content goes here.<br>

		</div>

	</body>

</html>

well, i couldnt make the wrapper work, i manage to do some other things that work like it, but not a wrapper definetly.

Im gonna change the layout of the info pages for all my dvds, so i wonder if theres any way to change it like using a macro or change it one by one?
