im trying to update my page and i keep getting an 'attribute needed' message or something. anyway i just want to know how to u get a picture and text into a box. i want the box to have a background colour and stuff but it never works 4 me!!!!
thank you xx
Boxes don't include the concept of a background colour. So you'd be better off starting with a proper TABLE tag. That way you can do things like:
<TABLE BORDER="1" BGCOLOR="#6699FF">
<TD><PICTURE BLOB="B5130047" />
I like Buffy
Note how the Table Data cell is nested inside a Table Row which is itself inside the main TABLE tag. You can have more than one cell and more than one row. You can specify a BackGround colour for each with BGCOLOR (note the american spelling). You can use colour names instead of red-green-blue numbers, see A529715 and A623242 or A315901. You can have a different border thickness to your TABLE "box" (or none at all). You can put TABLEs inside other TABLEs. The important things are to get the order of nesting and spellings right!
thanks loads uve really helped. im trying it out now.
thank u again!!! <love>
