Using Background Images when Matching Web Page Columns with CSS
(Page 1 of 4 )


Welcome to the final article of the series that began with "Matching Web Page Columns with CSS." As the article's title suggests, this series introduces a basic yet effective method for balancing the layout columns of a given web page using both liquid and fixed designs.

As I stated clearly in the two previous articles of this series, the CSS-driven approach that I used to build a web document that displayed its main bars neatly evened out on the browser is actually a simple method. It might look rather basic to the eyes of seasoned web designers accustomed to working with complex web page layouts and sophisticated CSS hacks.

However, for those designers taking their first steps into this challenging area, the CSS technique that I introduced in the two preceding tutorials of the series might be useful, particularly where the development of a given web site doesn't require creating very complicated page layouts.

So far, so good. At this stage I must assume that you're already pretty familiar with the CCS-based method shown in the previous article, which demonstrated how to balance the columns of a specific web document using a fixed layout. However, this educational guide has one more chapter. In this final installment I'm going to show you how to incorporate background images into an existing column-leveled web page layout. This will allow you to achieve popular eye-catching visual effects, such as rounded and beveled corners among others.

Hopefully, by the end of this article you'll have a decent background in how to include all the fancy details into your own web pages, while keeping their columns completely balanced.

With the preliminaries out of our way, let's move on and start learning together how to add some tiny visual details to a fully-balanced web page layout. Let's go!
