wondering what code is required to 'tile' a color bar or two across the page (L to R) to match the size of the window. Also, the length, if that's variable.How big should the color file (png? or jpeg?) be?
You can set a div and then you can use css to style it.
call your div (scretch) stretch and apply a style to that div(stretch) that is 100% wide by however high and with the colour you need.
Otherwise create a tiny gif that is the height you need but only say 5 pixels wide and then style this so it repeats y (I can never remember if it is y or x axis for width)
The following is to show how to get a full width header and footer. It is not meant as an illustration on how to style a complete document.
<div id="header"><h1>This is the full width header</h1></div>
