There is a problem when wanting to make rounded corners. I want to be able to put rounded corners independent of my html formatting.

Is it a pipe dream to think that there is some way to take this code:

<div id="content">
<h3>Header</h3>
<p>
Content
</p>
</div>

And put that in a rounded box using just CSS. I've accepted the idea that I need to have catchall images at the bottom of the page, but other than that, I don't want to have to think: Maybe someday I'll want this section in a rounded box. Isn't that the whole reason for seperating content from presentation?!

Rounded Box - ambitious new idea or sad realization?

There's a wicked new rounded box method available:

http://www.vertexwerks.com/tests/sidebox/

The html is fairly clean, and the 4 images are applied
via the css as BG images. It works fine back to IE5/win,
If thaty can be believed!

It's based on this method:
