    Default Creating website backgrounds help

    Hi there,

    I am not really sure how to acheive this and I am probably not going to be
    that good at explaining but here goes:

    I want to create a main background image for a site I am working on. The
    width of the page itself is 625px and will be centered. Now I want to create
    a background for this that will span 1400px and will be 100px high. This is
    all pretty straight forward but I would like to have shaded edges aroung the
    left and right edges of my 625px page, so how do I get an exact 625px space
    centered onto the 1400px background so I can create the darlened edges?

    I have uploaded an example background that I saw on a site to give you a
    better understanding of what I want to achive.

    http://www.nuweb.it/bkgd2.gif as you can see here they have a space
    perfectly centered for their page on the background. I just want to know the
    easiest way for centering the page content area.

    Thanks a lot

    They did it the hard way. :-)

    Make a tile for the page background that's nothing but the darker color
    you want showing on either side of the centered table. Make a separate
    background image for the table that includes the shaded left and right
    edges.

    To center the content table, just use the Align feature in Dreamweaver.
