Apply background to the html element, and experiment with transparent
background(-color) further in.
Having file-sizes over 100K for background-decoration, seems a bit too
With so little of the background-image actually being visible in an
average browser-window, I would look at ways for using much smaller (in
file-size) repeated background-images, and make use of .
Maybe one part on top on the #outerwrap, and one on bottom of html
and/or body, might work.
Available window-size will always be difficult to predict.
For now it can go down to around 900px width, which is a bit on the
large side, IMO.

screen-width - 3800px, so it's all about finding a balance that you're

an ul is usually good enough as container all on its own. At least
#navcontainer can go.

details behind the visual design. Focus on getting the design to work
for now, as it will reveal your ideas a lot better when all visual bits
are in place.
