Css floating content box question

codevomit asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Hello All,

I've been tasked with turning the art of a designer into a site. I don't normally work with CSS as my main roll is software development. I'm having some problems with creating a content box, I've attached an image of what I'm trying to achieve. The content box itself is easy enough:-

#content-top {

      height: 21px;

      background: url(../images/content-top-01.jpg) bottom no-repeat;


#content-mid {

      background: url(../images/content-mid-01.jpg) center repeat-y;

      padding: 0 16px 0 10px;


#content-btm {

      height: 21px;

      background: url(../images/content-bottom-01.jpg) top no-repeat;


Then assemble the box with three div tags. The problem is getting the graphics that sit in the corners to sit behind the content box.

Thank you in advance.
