Dreamweaver Help
 
I've been fooling around with Dreamweaver, but i have a problem. Is there a way to set the background of the entire page, without drawing a huge table? I've been drawing individual cells but I end up with white gaps in between them. Am I being unclear?

not sure on a mac but if you press "Control + J" on the M$ version, brings up page properties ... everything you need is in there :)

I'm not sure about the best way to do it throught the GUI but if you switch to code view and find the <body> tag near the top (it'll probably look something like <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF"> and maybe with some more attributes inside - put a background="file.jpg" inside (so it looks like <body background="file.jpg" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">). file.jpg has to be in the same directory as the html file you're editing. You could put it in a subfolder, 'images' and change the attribute to background="images/file.jpg".

Goto the modify menu -> then page properties. Control J works on the XP version, apple J on the mac version.

Or define it in your CSS
Code:

body {
  background-color: #ccc;
  }

That way if you want to edit it later you will only have to do it from one place :)
