    color changing towards edge of a table

    luadke Level 1
      Hi,

      I was wondering if there is any way to make a background color, of any given table, change towards the edges. By this I mean, instead of having a bg image fitting the size you want exactly, you have the 100 or so pixels towards the edge of the table constantly staying the same style even if you change the width/height however you want.

      Thanks for any help

          Background images don't stretch. They tile. But consider this -

          Make a gradient image and place it as the NON-TILING background of the
          table. Use CSS to set its position to either left or right. Set the
          table's background color to either the beginning or the ending color of the
          gradient. This may well give you the effect you are seeking.
