    Hi,

    I want to add a tiled image as a background to the Coraline theme I am editing - http://brunswickland.co.uk/circus11

    I would like the main page template to remain white where the text/content will be.

    Can you tell me if this is possible and how I would go about doing it?

    Here is code (I think?):

    Code:
    html, body, div, span, applet, object, iframe,
    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, blockquote, pre,
    a, abbr, acronym, address, big, cite, code,
    del, dfn, em, font, ins, kbd, q, s, samp,
    small, strike, strong, sub, sup, tt, var,
    dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li,
    fieldset, form, label, legend, caption, table, tbody, tfoot, thead, tr, th, td {
        border: 0;
        font-family: inherit;
        font-style: inherit;
        font-weight: inherit;
        margin: 0;
        outline: 0;
        padding: 0;
        vertical-align: baseline;
    }
    /* remember to define focus styles! */
    :focus {
        outline: 0;
    }
    body {
        background: #fff;
        color: #000;
        line-height: 1;
    }
    ol, ul {
        list-style: none;
    }
    /* tables still need 'cellspacing="0"' in the markup */
    table {
        border-collapse: separate;
        border-spacing: 0;
    }
    caption, th, td {
        font-weight: normal;
        text-align: left;
    }
    blockquote:before, blockquote:after,
    q:before, q:after {
        content: "";
    }
    blockquote, q {
        quotes: "" "";
    }
    a img {
        border: 0;
    }

    HI - I've got a few minutes between students - your site is broken, don't know what's wrong but there seems to be no CSS at all.
    I've got a copy of Coraline and I'll see what I can do to help with the background image / white content area thing.

    Whew! I thought something I said might have been the cause - our family has a saying:"It's all M.A.'s fault" (even when I'm not there!)

    I'll poke around a bit tonight and see what I can figure out.
