I have a CSS design problem.

I have a main content box and want to add gradient image baground as border color. Anyone that has a good guide, option, code or something to explain/show how to make that.

So instead of typical border colors using images, have gradient images (PGN)

The following gives you a gradient border and also allows you to specify the thickness.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
		<title>Demo Page</title>
		<style type="text/css">
			#MainContainer {
				height: 615px;
				background: white;
				margin-left: auto;
				margin-right: auto;
			.gradient-border {
				width: 1000px;
				margin-left: auto;
				margin-right: auto;
				/* Border background: */
				background: #003562 url(grad.png) repeat-x top left;
				/* Border thickness: */
				padding: 3px;
		<div class="gradient-border">
			<div id="MainContainer">test
