thanks so much for your help. i am working my way through the tutorial with the dog pictures. i'm running into problems with the location of photos - i managed to make my full size ones appear but cannot work out how to locate the thumbnails so it can find them. you refer in your code to "url: and then a location - if i am using my own pictures would i still use "url" or would it be where they are on my computer or on the remote server where the website is?

Angharad, you would still use url() and it will be a file on your server. If you have the css in a separate file then the image file will be 'relative' to the css file. If your css is embeded in the html file then the image file will be relative to the html file.

Fran C:-
I appreciate this site. I am in the process of "rebooting" a personal site from table to table-less format. There is however a slight problem. I thought about using for the background image in CSS 2 different colr gradient "chips" placed in exactly opposite each other in the corner, upper right and bottom left corners. I was thinking of placing the images one in the body markup and one in a div markup that would be like an outer container. The problem is the upper one shows up fine. The bottom one doesn't, even with paddings or margin. Not going to even say anything about the footer. That disappears!!!
Firefox can show the lower one fine as well as the upper one. IE shows the upper one placement fine but forget about the lower one. That's gone!
If you would like me to explain it in more details, I will be happy to put it on the net for you to look at it and email you the URL.

About the 100% background image placement? What is the dimension of the image you used?

Thank you again.

I found this site via, and man am I glad I did! You have done a tremendous job of putting a site together to educate those of us developers striving to move ahead with CSS. I would also like to tip my hat to all of the developers who have contributed their talent and time to this site.

You can be sure this will be the first place I go for my CSS issues and ideas. Hopefully I will become proficient enough to donate my ideas as well.

Keep up the great job!!

Angharad, looking good. Hope the site does well.

I have a question.

I know the rounded corner issue has been discussed and run into the ground, but I am still coming up empty handed. The latest article I can find is from 2003, and is utterly confusing. I recently went to to order some tutorials and BAM! right on the front page are cornered boxes with links nested inside. AND they work in Explorer!!

Can anyone explain to me how this is accomplished without using 8 pages of CSS code and 2 seperate images? There has to be a better way.

Bryan, uses tables to position the corner images. The usual css way is to use corner images at the moment. Firefox does have a css style to radius corners that is referenced in css3
border-radius: < length > < length >
but this is not IE compatible.
