Hello iaaan,
CSS3 can do rounded corners but it's not widely supported yet. Image based corners are how it's normally done. Have a look at some demos -

one (http://nopeople.com/CSS%20tips/rounded%20corners/index.html)
two (http://nopeople.com/CSS%20tips/rounded%20corners%20-%20CSS%20only/index.html)

the easiest way to make rounded corners is in css3 using border-radius.

in html make a div tag with id container.

<div id="container">
website content goes here.

and in css do.

#container {
margin:0 auto;

this gives you a red box width rounded corners. homever it's still not supported amongst all browsers.

Using border-radius will give you rounded corners in all popular browsers except for IE8 and earlier.
