building with tables

I know the basics of developing a site. but I want to create the following and dont know how.

I want a page that shws the background merely as a border, maybe half an inch thick, and the rest is taken up by a differently colored table that is really just 6 boxes connected together. 2 on top, 2 on bottom, and 2 inbetween. Then I could fit my links and stuff in the different boxes.

Can anyone help me?

thanks!
eric

Thanks for your help, but that is not exactly what I was looking for. I would like six seperate boxes that are connected. Kind of like if there was one big box and then one line seperating them verticly, and two lines deperating horizontally.So I would then have 2 boxes side by side on three different levels.

thanks,
eric

What do you mean by "connected" and "side by side on three different levels"?

I am having trouble visualizing what you mean.  It should not be all that difficult to create.

I'm not sure how to explain. The table giang posted was similar to what I am looking for. Except that instead of having those three layers of colors, I want six different colors. His table showed a different color on the top, middle, and bottom. I would like 2 different colors on the top (side by side), and the middle, and the bottom.

You know how in the brady bunch they show all of the family in a box in the intro? Well, in the intro the boxes are a total of nine. I want a total of six. It's the brady bunch minus the middle vertical row of boxes.

If that's all you want, apply the background colors to the rows instead of to the tables.

E.G.,

<TABLE BORDER=0>
<tr BGCOLOR=#aadd9>
<td align=center>
<a href="link1.html">link1 goes here.</a>
</td></tr><tr0 BGCOLOR=#dd9900>
<td align=center>
<a href="link2.html">link2 goes here.</a>
</td></tr><tr>
</table>

P.S. If this works, give qiang8 the credit.  He did the work.
