Trying to emulate thin borders

  acrobat270 13:16 09 Jun 2004

Trying to emulate thin borders around blocks of text or a set of links with a colour block across the top with the title in. Have had success to a degree using tables and cells to get thin borders but this only works in IE, looks wrong. Some success with CSS for thin borders but not getting colour block across top for title.

Example of what I am trying to achieve can be seen on sites such as:
On the left hand side:
click here

on the right hand side.
click here

in the mainpage (not bothered about the rounded corners):
click here

I think this may require css to do it?
Any help gratefully recieved.

Found better example here:

click here on both left and right hand side.

That last link you gave is controlled using CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). I've not looked at your other links but I suspect you'll also find CSS at work.

There are loads of CSS tutorials on the web and a few links to get you going are:

click here

click here

click here

Try adding this before your closing head tag:

<style type="text/css">


table {
border: 1px solid #000000;
td {
border: 1px solid #000000;
