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.

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:



		<title>My Website</title>

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



		<div id="wrapper">

			Page content goes here.<br>

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?
