Triple Border Tutorial

So many folks just copy and paste the code from my source when they are using one of the triple borders.  That's fine AS LONG AS they begin with the <body> tag and not before!  But, for some folks on certain servers, or using certain page editors, copying and pasting the code does not work.


At any rate, it is *always* a good idea to learn to write your own HTML.  So, below is the proper method of setting of the tables for a triple border or *nested set* as some call them.  If you need to take a peek at the source on this page as you go along to get the full idea...that's fine.

FIRST...download all the graphics you will need to your own hard drive and then upload them to your own file directory.  Then set up the page as follows:
 
 

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Your Page Title</TITLE>
</HEAD> 

<BODY BACKGROUND="name of the background around the outside edge of the page...for example on this set it would be the fallofourlivesdarktile.jpg" BGCOLOR=#82A495 TEXT=#6E5C7C LINK=#6E5C7C VLINK=#6E5C7C ALINK=#6E5C7C>
<BR>
<BR>
<CENTER><TABLE BACKGROUND="name of the middle background...here it would be fallofourlivesstrip.jpg" BORDER="1" BORDERCOLOR="#462D1A" WIDTH="90%" CELLPADDING="50" CELLSPACING="0">
<TR>
<TD WIDTH="100%">
<P><CENTER><TABLE BACKGROUND="name of the background in which your page contents would be written on...here it would be falloflourlivestile.jpg" BORDER="1" BORDERCOLOR="#462D1A" WIDTH="100%" CELLPADDING="5" CELLSPACING="0">
<TR><TD WIDTH="100%"> 

<--ALL YOUR PAGE CONTENT,TEXT, BUTTONS, ETC. GOES BELOW THIS LINE--> 
 

</TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>
</CENTER>
</TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>
</CENTER>
<BR>
<BR>
</BODY>
</HTML>

That's it!  You've done it.
You can adjust the size of the various tables by altering the
table width.  You can also alter the border size by varying that number...or
you can use no border at all by simply putting border=0.
You can alter the color of the border by placing bordercolor="color number"
right after border=1 or whatever size you choose.
If you want double border colors like you see on many of my sets just
add this to the tag: 
bordercolorlight="#color number"
bordercolordark="#color number"
