Hi Guys,

I was wondering if you could help me with this..

http://xs.to/xs.php?...pageexample.gif

I have explained on the image. Its just in relation to getting 2 images I created which mark the sides of a web page with a nice shadow effect.
I want to get that effect running the whole length of the page based on how long the page is gonna be?

Cheers!

This would be easy with a table, since the height of each cell would match.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.

instead of using the image to define the size, use the cell's background (<td background="images/team/Administration.gif" id="l_header">&nbsp;</td>).  or you can use a definition in ur css to do the same thing

#t_1 {
background-image:url(images/FABORDER.jpg);
background-repeat:repeat-y;
}

(thats mine from: http://www.firearms2...richei/updates/)

I use the same deal that you're using.  The background is done with the above statement.  You won't need the side cells but they help in defining the space.  since you';re putting text in there i would suggest using the background so it will tile properly.

If this is a fixed width site just create an image that has teh 'shadows' at each side (to the width of your desire) then set teh background image to top middle and repeat y
