    Red face css help please -im stupid

    Hi All

    I am a total beginner to css - so forgive this probably repeated and basic question - but is there a step by step tutorial somewhere

    I have read most of the articles and forums and its all complete double dutch to me (no offense) but is there a tutorial that explains css in plain english.

    I'll explain what I am trying to create I would like to create content boxes such as this example http://www.visualvault.com/

    Ok so I have my gif image of the content box - normally using tables you would have to slice the image up and put them into cells right?

    but I dont understand how to do it this with css - do you still need the slices or can you use the whole gif as a background, do I need a table?

    I would be grateful if someone could please explain this to me - as simply as possible - be gentle with me..

    Regards
    Lojo

    Hello

    your example is a 3 column layout with sub header, nav bar, header and a footer

    maybe start with Pauls long tread on it ?

    Hi,

    If you are talking about the rounded corner boxes then there is plenty of advice out there and I suggest you read this thread ans see if it answers your questions first.

    http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/show...36224&t=221289

    Or here:
    http://css-discuss.incutio.com/?page=RoundedCorners
    http://pro.html.it/esempio/nifty/

    Or with Js.

    http://www.sitepoint.com/article/rou...css-javascript

    That should keep you busy for a while If you still can't work it out then poost back with what you have done so far and we'll point you in the right direction.

    Hi Paul

    Well I have looked at these and I am sort of getting to grips with it luckily I have bought a book to help me as a total beginner it all seems a bit daunting ...

    Many thanks for your help
