wish to create a border whereby I can show information:one transparent: one not.
I want to create something but really dont know where to start.: I want to create a page that looks something like a desktop with a couple apps open: one I want to appear like a light thin frame from which inside will appear content (this I want to be transparent): the other area I want to appear simply like a text box from which I will show content(non-transparent):
I dont have a problem with mysql or php in terms of getting content into a space wether it be between table tags. etc. just dont know primarily how to create a frame in which I can insert date: woulld this be four pics adjusted into tables??? or is there another way: 'backgrounds will be different scapes, some gif files or other format.: this link show something of what I mean but not in its staggered format...I would like to use gimp but open to anything....dont have money to spend..:have two four month old twins.: I do have gimp and an photoshop5
