How to Build a Web Page
with a Border Background
Here is a sample page showing some of the
things you can do with Spot's Free Graphics to build your own web
Using backgrounds with borders is tricky. We
have all seen sites where the writing is spread all over the border background they were
trying to show off and it looks horrid. If you have tried using backgrounds with borders
and about given up, the answer is simple. You need to use tables to put things where they
ought to go!
You can use "view source" to see how
this simple page is set up.
You are welcome to use the code. Just change
the size of the tables to go with the graphics you have chosen.
You can use the graphics on this page to build
your web site or any found at Spot's Free Graphics. Right click
on the graphic you want and save it in a folder you have for images on your hard drive.
Then, insert the graphic into your web page as required by whatever page editor you are
using. If you are using a free site on the web, they probably have instructions telling
you how to "upload" your graphics. Link your own destination page to the buttons
in the table at the left.
Add your own content where this explanation is
and remove everything else.
Then, you should have an acceptable first page.
You can play around with it by replacing the graphics with any you like better from Spot's Free Graphics.
To start with it is probably best to keep your
site navigation simple. We recommend that you use the same page style over and over on
your site. Just change the content in the middle so that the links are the same on
every page. People get confused if you change your pages too much. Of course, you need to
change the destination of the next button as you go. You might even want to put it at the
bottom of each page.
We hope this has been helpful and has answered
some of those questions about how to use backgrounds with borders.
