Hi, I wondered if anyone could tell me how to get an image where I would like it to be. I need a clear.gif, which I have created, size width: 150px height: 92px. It should sit on the lower bottom of my web page over the picture of a boy with a pail and the words "why rent" I tried myself to position it and must be doing something wrong. Please view my page at www.branicdesigns.com/tiny/index.html and my css style sheet is style.css. Thank you for any help you can give me. Dawn Wink

That's simply not enough

That's simply not enough info Dawn.

What is clear.gif for?

What is it that you are aiming to achieve (not the method that you think is the correct approach to this aim)

I see a clear.gif placed as a background to the #nav element what is it doing? what's it for?

If you can provide a little more detailed info then someone should be able to help out.

I am designing this site for

I am designing this site for someone and they actually designed the background the way they wanted it, so in order for me to have clickable links on the background I need to add a clear gif over that part of the background I want to make linkable. I have a gif created but I can't seem to get the css coding correct for the clear gif to sit over that part of the background image. I tried and I couldnt seem to get the gif to where I wanted it positioned on top of the graphic on the bottom left hand side, where it says "Why Rent". Now, I would have normally created a graphic instead of it being on a background, but I didn't create the background. Dawn

Hi there,

Hi there,
While I appreciate this is not your design, it has, I believe, a signifincant amount of issues that impinge on usabilty. IMO, it is not an appropriate design methodology for the medium.

For example, once images are disabled the site becomes extremly difficult to navigate. Also, a single text resize completely destroys the aesthetic. There are other issues, too, pertaining to browser window size that are problematic. These are real situations your site will encounter and will, ultimately, affect the users' experience.

Is it possible to remake the background to suit the medium you are working with?

Life's a journey. Enjoy the trip.

Why not just slice up the image you've been given and code the site properly?

Thanks for all your

Thanks for all your comments, however, I have already put too much time into this site to redo the background. It would not be feasible for me to recreate that. I advised my client of these problems as well.

I didn't say re-do the background, I said slice it up. It would probably take five minutes to slice it up into the pieces you need.

Hell, if you want me to, I'll do it for you this evening to explain what I mean.
