    does anyone know how to create a drop shadow effect on, say, the container box which encloses the web page.

    lets say i have a web page which has a container box 500px wide in the center(that houses all of the text), i know how to create an image with a shadow effect then place it to the side, however if the page size become really big the image cuts off before the bottom of the page ruining the effect. i can only use that for small image box shadows.

    anyone got any good solutions?

    peace out

    Slice your image into three parts, a top, bottom and a flowing background image (something at can be repeated along the y-axis).

    Then do the following:

    #container {
        background: url("path/to/images/container_bg.gif") repeat-y top left;
        width: 500px;
    #container:before {
        background: url("path/to/images/container_top.gif") no-repeat top left;
        container: "";
        display: block;
        height: [value]px;
        background: url("path/to/images/container_bottom.gif") no-repeat top left;
        container: "";
        display: block;
        height: [value]px;
    HTML Code:
    <div id="container">
        <p>Example Text</p>

    That should do it. Any probs just say (haven't tested it, but done it many times before)
