All, I recently figured out to get a domain name and server working hand in hand. As such, a lot of the projects I had planned are starting to come together. Currently I am working on the webpage portion of the project. I am mostly using the built in text editor in Ubuntu because I like the control I have over typing the 'code' myself. I, however, know very little about CSS/HTML; as such, I am teaching myself as I go. I have two handy reference guides and, of course, the vast expanse of the internet and practically the source code for any site ever built. However, combing through source code for the answers to my questions take copious amounts of time, so I am going to present the basic information to you and see what you think. The page I am currently building is the blog page. This page will replace the default when complete... until then a weak placeholder page is in place. Anyway, I want to design the blog in such a manner that there is a header a footer and 2 columns. I have this coding down, with no issues. I have the entire page background set to a navy blue, with the content boxes being lighter shades of gray. Let me tell you this sudden change really clashes. I figured as a solution I would implement a gradient border to ease into the content boxes. This is where I need assistance. I want nearly everything on this page to be determined by percent. I do not want fixed width and height content boxes, I could very easily brute force my borders to work if this was the case. I have been messing around for about 90 minutes with this thing, just tonight, and I must say, every change I make I learn a little more about HTML and the engines thought process. I'm going to post again with my code so far. Thanks! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
