  1. pushbike - interesting, could you be more specific as to the what, how and where to try this... thanks!
  2. This code produced the attached screen shot from Dreamweaver's Preview in Browser: <html> <head> <title>full_page2_bkg2.html</title> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> </head> <body bgcolor="#0000CC" marginwidth="0" marginheight'"0" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" bottommargin="0" link="#CCCCCC" vlink="#CCCCCC" alink="#CCCCCC"> <div id="Layer1" style="position:absolute; width:100px; height:40px; z-index:1; left: 782px; top: 452px"> <div id="Layer2" style="position:absolute; width:9px; height:13px; z-index:10; left: -573px; top: 16px"><img src="copyr_db2.gif" width="20" height="20"></div> <p> </p> <p align="center"><font color="#CCCCCC"><b><font face="Verdana"><u><font size="2"><a href="wwhome.html" target="_parent">Home</a></font></u></font></b></font></p> </div> <p> </p> <table width="50" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center"> <tr> <td><a href="full_page3_bkg3.html"><img src="fp2_bkg.jpg" width="950" height="625" border="0" usemap="#Map"></a></td> </tr> </table> <map name="Map"> <area shape="rect" coords="1,1,951,627" href="full_page3_bkg3.html" target="_parent"> </map> </body> </html> Site visitors are instructed prior to viewing a series of pages - showing samples of (lets call them) backgrounds for images - to click on these pages to move forward, or on the (layer) word "home" to go to their starting point. I know it's off course to do it this way and I will eventually improve the formating, but for now I get (for me) an acceptable result. The pages are meant to be seen like clean (and uncluttered as possible) canvases. The attached page works because I can map the .jpg to link to the next page. The sample page created with a tiled background .jpg doesn't for the reason you point out. It would have been nice because the sample would have covered the entire page. Guess I'll do something else. Thanks much for your advice and consideration - truly appreciated. JR
  3. Thanks for going this extra mile, Andrea. I can't demonstrate with a hosted site right now, but think of it this way: Page 1 = Home.html - links to Page 2 via <img src="x.jpg"> imbedded in a table Page 2 = Bkg.html ---- links to Page 1 via a "floating" text word "home" (page is composed from a background .jpg) & needs to link to Page 3 without using a "floating" text word, if possible Page 3 = Stuff.html --- links to Page 1 via a "floating" text word & to Page 4 via <img src="y.jpg">imbedded in a table Page 4 Page 5 Etc. If there's no other way to link to Page 3 from Page 2, I can use an extra "floating" text word to link them. It would just be adding clutter to the page, so I'd really prefer not to.
  4. Thank you for your response. The 1st example does contain a table with a .jpg in it - the format seems ok and linking from that page is easy. There's no table on the page with the repeated background .jpg. I used the tiled .jpg approch to make that page because the decorative effect it produces shows a certain possibility in backgrounding - it's a sample background I want viewers to see when they go to that page. If I can't add a link to the background image, that only leaves adding a link somehow to the document as a whole, or "floating" some text (as with the "HOME" link). I'd rather not do that as it begins to complicate the look of the page/sample. So, I'm rooting for the .hml to .html link solution. Any way to go with that?
  5. Hello, and thanks for considering this. I know how to link an image on a document to open up another document on my site. Example: <td><a href="full_page3_bkg3.html"><img src="fp2_bkg.jpg" width="950" height="625"></a></td> However, I have created a page using a tiled background .jpg. The code for that is: <style type="text/css"> <!-- body { background-image: url(fp3_bkg.jpg); } This is a different situation. I've sourced my Dreamweaver manual and must be missing it. Other than a "HOME" link there is nothing else visible on this page. Visitors will need to click generally anywhere on it to get to the next page of the site. The question is how do I code the link with the background .jpg? Or, perhaps there's a way to link .html to .html? Appreciate the help, JR
