I am trying to create a background I like the way Maxthon built theirs it is simple and yet attractive. How did they do this? I am also using the 960 grid system, I have tried to create an image but the image messes up on the bottom by repeating if the text goes beyond the bottom of the screen. I have tried to make the image norepeat but then the text moves while the image stays stationary. I have tried to use gradients but this also causes the gradient to repeat. I have tried to use three different div tags each with a different background color but they do not span the entire screen width even if I set width at 100%.
How did Maxthon do their background?
