Are you sure that's the right link? It throws an error for me.

These days, you are much better off doing away with the background images and using a border around your boxes, with the addition of border-radius. E.g.
<font color='"#FF0000"'>border: 5px solid #420000;
You can then do away with the background images, unnecessary divs etc. Much cleaner.

You're welcome. I could go into why the border image method wasn't working, but really, it's so much nicer to use the border/rounded corner method that it's not worth it.
