Hello all.

I've been working on this layout for a while and just can't seem to get it to work. I'm shooting for xhtml transitional and I want it to stretch with content/font size increases. But building the stylesheet and slicing out the source layout image for my background images is getting the best of me!

I am just trying to create a site with a header, a button style navigation down the left, a content area on the right that stretches, and a footer that stretches as well. Oh yeah... this is a fixed width, centered site.

Here is the mock up and a diagram of where I was thinking should be sliced. I'm wondering if I have approached this wrong. Do I need to take consideration of where the nav is going to be when slicing the background images?

Could someone possibly get me started on what I should be doing CSS wise to get this to work?

Thanks for any insight!
