Links and Color Background

I have a few question that i need to know. How can i have a website with 2 separate background color. For example website like hotmail.com.

Another problem is that when i create i link. I would like the link to be appear with another "new window". Can you have a look at these commands whether it allow me to have link with a "new window".<a href="filename.html></a> or <a name="name"></a>,<a href="name.html></a>. I had try these commands but it didnt work as what i want.

That Hotmail site is done with a tiled gif image.  the source of the image is...

http://216.33.150.251/bkgdhome2.gif

and that tiled vertically down the page gives the appearance of the 2 background colours.  

Another way to do it is to set up a frames page with two vertical frames (disable the scroll bars) but you have to be sure that the whole page will fit in the browser window.

And just to prove that there are at least 23 diferent ways to skin a cat, you could set up a table with two columns and set the background colour of the cells.

Take your pick!!!

Another way to get the same effect, but with some more effort, is to make a frameset, and have 2 frames, with each another bgcolor

Color in links:

<head>
<title>Example</title>
</head>
<body>
<p><a href="http://www.foo1.com"><font color='#FF00FF'>example1</font></a></p>
<p><a href="http://www.foo2.com"><font color='#FF0000'>example2</font></a></p>
</body>
</html>

New window:

<a href="http://www.foo.com" target="new">foo</a>

Sorry,

Forgot about the other part of the question....

I guess you are trying to get a link to open up a new browser window....

<a href="filename.html" target="_blank"></a>

is what you need.

chwankok,

Which method for the background did you go with in the end?  

This question acually inspired me on the design of an site I'm working on, but using colour gradients instead of just the two colours.
