    Hi.
    I'm trying to learn html and make a home page. I have my frames all set up but can't figure out how to fill them with the backgrounds I want in them. I am using the editor Eversofts 1st Page. I have 5 books and have read every tuts I could find but nothing has helped. Keep in mind I know nothing. Is ther hope for me?
    Thanks

    Set Backgrounds Individually


    Each frame holds a 'distinct' HTML page with its own headers. So, for each BODY tag, you have to add the BACKGROUND attribute which points to your image file location.

    For example, let's say in a certain frame I want to tile the background with an image named "bkgd.gif" that's stored in a directory called "images" which itself resides just below the web server root directory, I'll type

    <HTML>
    <HEAD><TITLE>A Frame</TITLE></HEAD>
    <BODY background="/images/bkgd.gif">
    etc...

    Check with the system administrator if you don't know where the image files are stored.

    G'luck!
