Full Border Backgrounds
Many of my recent Environments will be taking advantage of a design that has borders around the entire perimeter of the web page. The interface I use on my own pages styles itself loosely around this concept. The most important thing to remember is that it uses background table patterned fills that allow for varying resolutions of web browsers, as they expand and contract unlike static graphics.
This tutorial will teach you how to use a full border around the entire perimeter of your page. You will need recent browser versions to view it, Netscape 4 or later and MSIE 3 or later.
This tutorial also assumes you know basic, simple HTML, like how to create a table and what a BODY tag is. It is also advised that you review the lesson on
