Background images

Hi,

I just downloaded the demo and citydesk looks like it may fill my needs. I am trying to set up a template that looks like my home page    (www.yourmortgagedoctor.com)   

I use borders to generate top,left,right, and bottom information.

When trying to duplicate the top border (by cutting and pasting my existing html) I can't get the background image to stay under the text. The text goes in a couple of lines below the background image.

I use frontpage for the rest of my site, is there a way I can keep the "borders" portion of my site while utilizing the features of citydesk

Thanks
Danny

Ack! Your webpage started talking when I loaded it!! :)

Can you publish the citydesk site to a subdirectory or something so we can take a peek at what's wrong?

I seem to have gotten the background images to work (not sure how i did it). But now i am having trouble getting my articles to actually show up.

Code snippet from your file:
<td vAlign="center" borderColorLight="#ffffff" align="middle" width="25%" background="images/top_bg.jpg" height="116">

The background attribute is an IE thing, not supported by all browsers and deprecated in HTML4, so maybe you should use another technique.
