umm yeah, there is a really simple solution to this. For some reason my mind wasn’t working to set up a background image within the div, but the solution either as a background image for the div or as an image within the div should work. Simply use percentages, in other words you want it to fill up the entire window no matter what and so instead of specifying a width and height in pixels all you have to do is set both to 100% and that should do it for you. since I was having problems with my div I simply set it on an image with the img tag and it worked. it did leave me a little padding though even though I had used a reset in my css file but it is quite minimal. I’ll keep trying and see if I figure out what I’m not ‘seeing’.
