I have been working with css for a year now. Just when I think I have it, something happens that is illogical to the way I perceive css. I took over a site half fiished, developed in Dreamweafer. I am trying to finish converting the structure from tables to div’s. I wrapped a div Content, around the other div’s in order to display a background image. I can’t make it work, despite research and Rachel’s excellent book. The image the designer wants is 898px by 443px tall. I need it to repeat down as the content flows beyond 443px.
Here is css for the container. I have a red rule in there for verification of the container.
Image drops in. Thanks. But it stops short of the text on the page and the footer. The image size is 898 x 443. How do I get it to tile down automatically? Border didn’t work either, I guess because there was no defined height. I took it out because it was just for reference.
