Web design - CSS assistance please?

Bonjour, yours truely again.

Quick question - I'm wanting to create a shadowed border around my main container in an XHTML page, however the content is variable, so I can't really make a static/repeating background.

I'm pretty sure it can be done in CSS, but can't remember how.

Anyone know?

If I'm not clear, check out the ITN.co.uk website, it has a perfect example of what I'm looking to do (screenshot coming)

Left side of the container has a lovely shadowed border, this of course carries around and also continues to the bottom and back up again:


Hoping this isn't just a background, but I find it unlikely.

*Edit* Been searching but not really found anything. It's looking like I might just need to cheat a little, but still holding out :p
What software are you using?

Just using a text editor (well, using MS Expression Web 3 now, but still, doing it by hand). Also have photoshop to hand.

Thanks I'll check those out now :)

just so u know... css3 is still in it's early days and is not supported on all browsers..

this link shows you a brief overview of what will work etc...

Best to try and do it with images if u can! good luck! :thumbsup:
It's looking like we'll have to leave it (suits me fine tbh, another guy in the group was leaning towards it, so I'll hopefully talk him out of it ;)). Thanks all.

*Edit* I made the shadow myself and added it in, so it's all fine now, thanks for the help anyway guys.
