hello again SP,

lately i have been using templates BUT i wanted to do a custom job for someone's restaurant.

i wanted to have an image be the background for the <body> element and then lay everything out over the image and use .png transparency to darken certain areas for text, nav and logo.

what would be the ideal size for the image? i know iMac has a widescreen resolution of 2560x1440. i was thinking of just going with a pic size of regular old widescreen at 1600X900.

also, if someone has experience in this can someone point out and issues or problems i might have in advance?

finally, CAN SOMEONE PLEASE give me some websites that have done this very beautifully so i can get all inspired and whatnot.
