Hi Guys

Think I've asked this before, but here goes: been asked to do a site for some (sailing club) - How can i get a mainbody from to look something like http://www.nearhowe.co.uk/

(Im thinking colour scheme wise: Light/Sea Blues, i dunno, what do you think)

Also, I would like some ideas from you lot on the actual site. This needs to be a canny little site that will be used

DOwnload their source cose and images and see how it is done.

The top on bottom part of the shadows are just part of the main header and footer image.

The shadow down the right and left is a 1 pixel high image that is repeated to fill the height of the page

Do you use Firebug with Firefox Disco? if not, its worth getting for inspecting the code of other peoples websites.

I have a similar effect on [url]www.check-first.co.uk[/url], albeit without the top and bottom shadows, feel free to 'borrow' anything you need off that, but don't forget to grab the CSS file too.

thats exactly what I want.... apart from colour... are you able to drop me it over in a email so that I can change colours?

The Near Howe site's CSS file is [url]www.nearhowe.co.uk/NearHowe.css[/url].

If you're coding the website yourself, I'll assume you should be able to find the shadow on the container item yourself ;)

By the looks of things, they're cheating on the shadow. Seems to be an image they're using, and have set it as the background. Should be easy to replicate yourself in that fashion :)

cheers so far guys.

what do you reckon is easier? code myself or what i have DW and Front Page, Photoshop, and Fireworks to play with

and thats THIS mean, at the bttm (banner) where it says XHTML & CSS .. does this need to be on every site I do

don't use frontpage, whatever you do!

Personally I use the code view in dreamweaver because I like its syntax highlighting and the way it handles CSS, but I'd never trust it to do anything for me in terms of javascript and so on, the code in generates is bloated (and so slow) and notoriously buggy. Code it yourself, create the graphics in fireworks but don't use any HTML that fireworks might generate for you for the same reasons as not letting DW do anything for you.

Basically, no matter what you use to do it, learn what the code theory so you *know* what you're doing and how it all works, it'll take you further in the long run.

Once your code is finished you can use the w3c site to test your XHTML and CSS to make sure it conforms with their standards and is 'valid'. Don't worry about that too much, its better to have completely valid code but its not always possible.
