Hi! I am having problems with my DIV code that I am trying to use for Myspace. It's fun to work with, but frustrating because I'm not working it properly. I have looked through an HTML book for instructions but still can't fix my problem, but I don't want to give up! So if someone could please look through this code and tell me what I'm doing wrong, I WOULD LOVE YOU! Please and thank you very much!

(The background shows up but the DIV layout doesn't cover all of my original Myspace page.)

Ignore the text, I got this code from a website and I'm trying to customize it. Maybe that's my problem? But it shouldn't be.

<p class="ch">About This Layout</p></head>
<p class="content">
This layout is the second I made today. It features a series called Loveless which I have never heard of. I retyped the text it had on some images so I know what it's about now. The character featured is Soubi, a war machine that's designed to protect Ritsuka, who's the main character and they are caught in a war because Ritsuka wants to avenge his dead brother. It sounds quite interesting, although I have never heard or read about it before. <BR><BR>
I found the series' pictures again at Kiseki, but like I said before I think the site went down and was bought by another owner. The images are quite modernized and I thought it'd make a good blog layout by making it div again. I conbined two images together this time (I know I can't stop myself!) and it looks great (or so I think). ^^;<BR><BR>
If you decide to use this layout, write your contents, or in a blog site's case, your entries, write them in between where I said:<br>
start content<br>
end content<BR><BR>

<p class="ch">Navigation</p></head>
<p class="content">
The navigation is on the right, its in the a div layer, you can change in the index.html. I already indicated where they are. You can change the links to your own of course.

You know I'm only giving it to you for free because it's linkware, I have to have credit, you can't say this is your layout, you didn't make it! So to keep everyone happy, leave the watermark!
