Anyone know how to produce a graduated background without using a background image?  Is this possible?

Thanks,

Rob.

If you are using IE exclusively you can use the style tag to create a gradient background effect within your web page. This effect can be used for your entire web page background, or within your table cells.

To use the gradient effect as your web page background, use the following BODY tag:
<body style="filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(endColorstr='#C0CFE2', startColorstr='#FFFFFF', gradientType='0');">

To use the gradient effect within your tables, place the following code within your table tag:
style="filter:progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(endColorstr='#C0CFE2', startColorstr='#FFFFFF', gradientType='0');"

Although you can edit the gradient colors indicated in red, keep in mind, in order for the effect to display properly, you must use a light color and a darker color.
