rich,

<<thought it would be better to illustrate what I was trying to say by example

you sweet thang!
NOW i'm getting it! i've read and read and read, and all that happens is my mind numbs out.

you can see from my attempts [ http://www.katzidesigns.com/bms_site/index2.htm] at separating out the css, that i was sort of making inroads. but your code [with detailed explanation] makes it much clearer. i was just going up to your explanation about how to put the logo in, when i came back here to see it laid out correctly. and can also see all the questions i was preparing to ask, like 'do i really need all those fonts, etc.

<<Let me know if you have any questions!

might be a stupid question. but, how do i make lines across the left and right content to match my original design?

i thank-you from the bottom of my heart. all the books in the world are just that until it clicks.

Glad to be of help! :)

Ok, to get the left and right side with the effect you wanted is very simple. One, make a smaller image of that image, but design it such that if it were tiled it would look seamless along the edges when they're put side by side and above and below of one another, then add a rule with the background property. Basically the same concept you would use in old school HTML.

I'm selecting both sides here to prevent repetition.
Code:
#leftcontent, #rightcontent {
    background: #999999 url('http://www.katzidesigns.com/bms_site/tiledimage.jpg') repeat;
}
You don't have to use an absolute URL BTW, in fact relative URLs are always better.

Regards,
Rich

I think its the space before the DOCTYPE, cause I copied and pasted the source code from that page and re-ran it and it was fine. Are you using Dreamweaver to save the file? Try it with notepad.

Mozilla didn't even pick up the style sheet, weird.

Rich

That's strange -- if I copy the source of that page from Mozilla and paste it and run it it works fine, if I copy and paste it from IE its all chewed up. I'm convinced there are some extra characters getting in there, maybe carriage returns.

Rich

richard,

thanks. i believe dw is messing up for me, as it keeps showing the old arrangement, even though i'm pasting in your code.

see http://www.katzidesigns.com/bms_site/index4.htm

ps: i'm getting ready to throw my machine out the window!

i remembered from dw 3, that sometimes you need to do a 'save as' to over write it, so this is what i'm getting http://www.katzidesigns.com/bms_site/index5.htm
