Lateral backgrounds on fluid layout

Sent by CJ Larson on 9 September 2005 14:02

Ah, my mistake.  I'll have to let the more experienced give you the
perfect answer, but I'll take a stab at a not-so-great one (or two).

Is it possible in your layout to have a "blank" div to both the right
and the left of the main content?  You would then have a 3 column type
of layout, but the outer two would only contain your background image.


Still using the method I mentioned in my previous reply, you can
position the background image in CSS, so if you can figure out "where"
your middle content edges are, you could place the images accordingly.
I'm not sure if this is possible, but I figured I might as well mention

<waits for those above-mentioned experts.>  :)

I understood what you suggested, but it's not quite what I had in mind. 
What I want is the background from #left-graphic not to be aligned to 
left top, but to the right edge of the layout, and the background from 
#right-graphic to be aligned to the right edge of the layout.
