Hi all

I am just starting this web design process and am learning as I go ... I have unfortunately jumped in at the deep end and struggling to find a decent location to cover the basics ... so I have what I am sure must be a really basic query.

I have my site set up with a background image on repeat in the html tag ... and I have a div positioned absolutely at the top of the page to give me a rounded top edge to the page ... and then a repeating background for the div tags ... however I am being left with "gaps" between divs even though there is nothing between them ... if that makes sense? example is at www.sts.me.uk

Any pointers very gratefully received ... cheers

Sam

I'm not sure if this is exact code of your home page but lets have look at it

		If you are here, then you are using a computer, you probably own it. More than likely you use it for things other than just looking at this site too. You probably have other items of technology; televisions, DVD and Blu-Ray players, iPods or MP3 players, games consoles, laptops, digital cameras, printers, scanners and maybe even more. You probably thought having all of these new technologies would help simplify your life, make you more productive or just be good old fashioned fun.</p>

  1. You have two header in one html decument, only one is allowed
  2. For rounded edges have look at this collection of tutorials they should be helpful

d'oh :$ ... that was me and php'ing the nav bar in ... i had been testing it as a stand alone page and thus the second head tag. I'll sort that one out and see how I get on ... then I'll have a look at those tutes ... cheers

Sorted the head tag ... still getting these "blank spots" between the divs?? any ideas on the specific issue?

I am just investigating some of those other alternatives though for now ... but I am not really sure the issue is to do with my basic solution for rounded corners.

It does, you need to think out of the box.
All the tutorials show how to apply rounded edges to one div container with something inside, some text. However inside your div container will be number of other div containers. So you have to apply ronded edges styling to outside container and do what ever styling with inside components
