I'm trying integrate a new website's look and feel with an old website
who's sources and servers we don't have access to. I'm pretty close,
but there are some details I still need. Namely, the shadowing under
the menus and to the right the usuable work space on the page.
I have two images they used for shadowing. One is used for horizontal
shadowing under a menu control and the other vertically on the right
of usable space.
Those images are bg_top_shadow.gif and bg_right_showdow.gif.
When I do a view source of the old sites page, clearly I can't see all
the css information, but do see one of the rendered shadows is done
under a table as follows:
<TD style="BACKGROUND-IMAGE: url(UofM_Images\shadow.gif); WIDTH: 2%;
BACKGROUND-REPEAT: repeat" valign="top" align="left" height="100%"
My problem is I don't want to use a tables to lay out my masterpage
Can I accomplish the same effect with DIV and SPAN?
Currently my page header is just DIV of a given dimension. Say I want
to repeat the top shadow image below it.
Thank you for any help or information!
Re: Shadow right border? background-repeat with DIV?
The CSS may not be embedded in the HTML, but if you can do a View Source
you certainly can see the CSS, too. The easy way is to use the Web
Developer extension in Firefox. CTRL+SHIFT+C and all the CSS will be
shown in a new tab.
Saving the rendered page as "web page complete" may do, as well, though
it won't save graphics or other files that are only referenced in CSS or
I see yet another design suffering from div-itis on the horizon. :(
Your code snippets are insufficient to give you proper guidance, but
there is always more than one way to accomplish whatever your goal is.
