Sorry, I meant if you are declaring html and body you need to put a comma in between. In your case I don’t think you need to declare the html tag, just use the body tag and put your background image on it. The Doc is right if your image is in a folder called images and you are calling it from the css file which is in a folder called css then you need to change the code to url(../images/bg_img.jpg)
For the frog, you are positioning absolute and it is showing relative to the body not relative to the containing div. You need to add position: relative; to the containing div. See this article which explains it visually: http://css-tricks.com/absolute-position … sitioning/
The background problem is because in the reset.css you have a value set for background. If you remove that your background appears, but then we have another problem which you will see immediately. I don’t have time to look at it now, but will see if I can figure it out later.
Put the body tag back in the reset.css, it is there for a reason, and just remove the line with the background code from the reset.css. Then add the code for the background I gave you previously in the styles.css, but add it to the body tag not the #container.
Let me know
I think we are getting ourselves confused here and I’m not quite getting what you wanted.
I think you need to rework the way you have cut up the photoshop psd. I would do it like so:
Cut a sliver from the side of the background, say 5px wide by 50px high, enough to go beyond the black topbar then apply that to the body tag with the background color then the small image to repeat x.
Cut the part that you want as the container with the black topbar and glow and put that on the container tag with a width and margin: 0 auto; this will sit over the body background image. Remove the white part. That will be the background for the content tag.
