Hi, I'm fairly new to css, and I have a question about alignments. I want to take side-banners and put them on the right and left side of my website. I am currently using an external cascading style sheet. I looked at tutorials, but all of the tutorials I've seen are for css within the html document. I currently have the left banner, but the right banner wont show. I was wondering if anyone could help me to put both banners up at once, both aligned to the sides. This is the code i have so far:

External CSS:

.right
{
float:right;
}
 
body{
background-color: #330000;
background-image: url('pictures/untitled.bmp'); 
background-repeat: repeat-y;
height:100%;
width:100%;
padding-top: 0px;
padding-right: 0px;
padding-bottom: 0px;
padding-left: 0px;
margin-left: 0px;
margin-right: 0px;
margin-bottom: 0px;
margin-top: 0px;
}
 
#contentbox
{
 
	background:#292421;
	height:1000px;
	width:1000px;
	position:absolute;
	top: 150px;
	left: 300px;
 
}
#header
{
	background-color:#330000; 
	background-image:url(pictures/header.gif);
	position:fixed;
	left:500px;
	width:650px;
	height:110px;
	background-repeat:no-repeat;
 
}
#banner
{
	background-color:#330000;
	background-image:url(pictures/banner.bmp);
	position:absolute;
	float:right;
	height:100%;
	background-repeat:repeat-y;
}

About untitled

The untitled.bmp is the banner.bmp flipped, just so there isn't any confusion.

Well I can tell you for a

Well I can tell you for a start that you should not be using position absolute or fixed if you are new to css.
What you are looking for is a 3 column layout. You can look at the following site, where the layout html and css is already done for you.

All you have to do is add your own content and images.

P.S. Unless you provide a link to your site, we have no idea what your pictures look like Cool
