can I ask you a very related question because you mentioned something important about order? you said…
“The stacking order is as follows: background color is very bottom, covered by background image, covered by any table elements, covered by any layer elements in z-index order (higher numbers are higher above the page).”
I had many pages that I set with a black background and for a background image, I used an image that is a white glowing horizontal line with the same black background.
I did not know this then, but now I have figured out that the black background of the page loaded first, then the image (which had the same black background) loaded, therefore nothing “flashed” first.
Most recently, I made some design changes to some pages where the top 1/2 is black and the bottom is white.
In order to accomplish this, I used the same black graphic (which came down 760pxls) and then to get the white beneath that, I changed the PAGE background to white.
This accomplished the task as you will see here in this link…
but first I now notice that on those pages when it loads in, those certain paged flashes WHITE for an annoying and unprofessional split second. I imagine that is because of what you said; the page background loads first, then the background image, etc.
I hate the “white flash” you can see it here…
Before I ask you how to get around this, is this a simple fix…
I would go back to the page background being BLACK as I used to have it, and the lower place that I want white, just make a graphic or HTML box, fill in white and slide it UNDERneath the lower part of site?
