Graphic header

I’m trying to find a way to create a header (and footer) out of a wide graphic that will tile horizontally to fit whatever size window is being used at the time (somewhat like frames do).

The patterned piece I’d like to use is about 700px wide.
One only need look at this very freewaytalk page above to see what I’m talking about - the header grows to fit the window no matter what size. The only difference is that mine is a large pattern, not just color with a logo in the middle.

I’ll start with that, but in hand I’m eventually also looking for other items (TBD) to left justify, right justify and center within said header in the window as well. I couldn’t find one single template that employed this kind of design to steal off of, ha ha.

I’d like to avoid using frames if at all possible as it can create issues… any hints?

Take a look at the following example. There is also an example file to download and pick apart.

Thanks! I’ll give it a go and see if I can make this work for the design I’m attempting here…much appreciated!

I had a go at this, but the header in stretchilina is HTML with no apparent way to insert a graphic that would tile horizontally above the background…maybe then the easiest way is to recreate the background (including the item) to a much wider/bigger graphic to accommodate the header?

Thanks for the suggestion though, and it led me to more info links too!! :slight_smile:
