HTML & CSS
What is the best way to have the content of sections be 960px and he background to be 100%. For instance if I have header, content, featured and footer and I want the content to be 960 but the backgrounds to all be different colours that span the entire width of the browser how would I do that. I tried to have an outer and inner div but it does not work. Thanks for any hints you may have on how this is accomplished in CSS and HTML.
You would apply the background to the BODY of the page.
Yes it does. That's the way to do it, so perhaps the structure wasn't quite right. Have a look at this page layout for an example fo how to structure the outer and inner divs: http://pageaffairs.com/repo/full-width-bands/floated-columns.html
Thanks Ralph - I was missing the margin: 0 auto - now it works!!
