    New to web design

    awrench
      Hi, im just starting out in web design and am trying to put together a test site to learn dreamweaver abit better. What i need to know is how to create something like this : [URL=http://imageshack.us][IMG]http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/3776/siteja4.gif[/IMG][ /URL]

      so there is a basic colour in the background then a "box" with rounded corners/drop shaddow to hold all the content in (and have the content be locked in that box). i could do this with a picture background and a layout table i know but i want to learn the proper method!

      Thanks in advance for any help!

          Alex,
          Here's a quick tool that creates CSS div tags and images for you.
          http://www.roundedcornr.com/
          The code isn't perfect but it gives you an idea of how div tags can be used
          as wrappers around content areas.

          Also look at this method:
