How do they do that - bg effect on specific web page

Go to this address: http://www.futurenet.com/net/software/50compo/
How do they get the pale blue circle on the pink background effect (plus drop shadow)? I've scrutinsed the HTML and the graphics, but can't fathom it.

Oops I left something out. The page is in a frame, and the specific HTML file is 'knowhowindex.htm'

Anybody know?

It is the background image.
If you use Netscape, right-click the frame and select 'View Frame Info'.
The click on 'Background Image: ...' link in the top frame. Click on the URL link in the bottom frame.
You'll se that blue/pink.

I would say they have done a huge mistake at the other graphics, the globes. Their background should be transparent, not blue. It looks pretty lame in Netscape when the blue background of the globe pictures covers the pink edge. Err...hope you get it :-)

Martin - sorry but I can't believe I've been so dumb! What a waste of 40 points.

I loaded the HTML and didn't realise that the pale BG color was overiding the background gif:

<body BGCOLOR="#99CCFF" BACKGROUND="knowhowbg4.gif">

So I understand why I was getting just a blue background and no pink!

Anyway, you were dead right and I didn't know about that trick in Netscape - damn useful - I use IE4 - more fool me huh?

Nevertheless, you deserve 40 points for my stupidity! So resubmit as an answer and they're yours.

Thanks

Forgot to mention - as to the relative merits of the page - beauty in the eye of the beholder eh?

I like the curve - but yes you have a point about the bg - it should be transparent!

If you are interested in creating similar graphics, I think you should use Photoshop from Adobe (www.adobe.com).

BTW, use Netscape. That will save you some points in the future :-)
