    This is the new site that I'm currently designing but I'm having trouble with the layout lining up with the background because of the shading that over laps brick background, Is there away I can do this?

    You can do one of two things off the top of my head:
    • Use alpha-blended PNGs for the shadows. Works perfectly in every browser excluding IE, which requires some hacks, the simplest of which is just referencing a third-party Javascript file.
    • Always assume that the top of the page is at a certain position, then create a tiling shadow image with that assumption in mind. Also requires a fixed width.

    Well I could post the site but it looks horrible when the brick and shadow line up anyways, does anyone have a simpler way of fixing this problem
