    I'm still learning different ways to style and design websites. There is one type of design that I would like to know more about.

    Look at this website I found: http://route19designs.com/Solis/index.html. Examine the background. I have seen backgrounds like this on many websites. Do you create that effect through multiple images and coding, or is it simply one large image that matches up with the rest of the page?

    It's a 1px wide image that repeats along the x axis. Then, the background color is set to the same color as the bottom-most pixel of the image.

    The banner height must match the the top part of the background and top margin need to be set at "0" to all match up.

    It would be easier to use a solid brown background, and do a gradient for the background of the silver divs. There's no need to do things the way they've done it. Not to mention, it makes it a pain getting everything lined up, you can't allow your divs to expand, and adjusting sizes and positions requires recreating the background image.
