Hi Everyone,

I am making a left navigation bar and i want to it to look more blended into the page.  Right now it appears to be boxed off almost just placed on to of the page.  I want it to be set into the left side of the page.  All i pretty much want is to have a blue line extend down the page to almost section of the nav bar. I tried playing around with the borders but i haven't been able to get it to where i want it to be. Here is the table whichthe navigation is inside of.  I just want a blue line to run down the right side of the navigation all the way down the page.  Any suggestions are appreciated thanks.

Do you want the blue border to just border the right side of the left nav - to separate it from the body of the page, or how/where do you want the border?

Ok:

  <td valign="top">
      <!--**********************************Menu Bar****************************************-->
      <div style="height:100%;border-right:1px solid #369;">

change the <td valign="top"> to <td valign="top" style='border-right: 1px solid #369'> and drop the <div> enclosure.

I am placing the left nav bar under my top banner that stretches across the page.  I just want to give it a frame kind of that extends down the page.
