Need help with website layout :(
I need help guys, I've been out of the whole web design circuit for the past few years and I've got into the habit of web design using tables for formatting.
Now i'm using stylesheets and div tags and just need someone to give me some help on formatting. What i'm after is:
Wrapper (990px wide)
Header (Fixed height)
Links (Fixed height)
Page Section Heading (Fixed height)
Expandable Text Area (Main area for content)
Page Section Footer (Fixed height)
Could someone please knock something up for me or at least give me some advice on how to do this as my current attempts have failed when trying to enter multiple "returns" on the Expandable text area. (The image background only duplicates within the tag and creates a gap on the top and bottom as soon as a <p> is visible.)
Hope that makes sense...
