oh yeah, old news, didn't realise.
Don't you just love CSS
hmm, it's ok... (i'm still seathing from many, many, many wasted hours but that's more down to ie than css.)
I've only looked quickly but it seems the edges are created with 1px wide paragraphs but the fixed background is shifted by 2 pixels each time resulting in 1px being missing from the image at the edges.
yup thought it was something like that.
yup that'd be good. 'tis a bit tricky to grasp.
