Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have made my homepage with divs and than control everything by my css.

I have defined an background in my css(that is an image) and than in other div´s placed some jpg pictures in front of the background. You know, just a white box (as jpg) where text than are written in.

But the problem is that if I change to a lower screen resolution the white boxes in front of the background is not fitting into the background anymore and is sliding to the right.

How can I control this so don´t happend and the  boxes is sliding to the right boxes is sliding to the right

it depends of the other divs and of the attributes :overflow, position, float, width ...

do you code yourself the CSS+HTML or do you use a tool like dreamweaver ?
