Before I spend the next two hours trying to get this to work, I need a plan. I have an image which rides halfway between the webpage main area and the sidebar background. The background is a gradient.
You'll see exactly what I'm talking about at www.jontakiff.com
Is it a matter of having the background behind the balloon be pixel-dead on perfect with the gradient to maintain the illusion I'm going for? Do I need to slice the graphic, put half on the background, half on the main page? And I'm assuming I could run into big problems with different screen widths, etc. as well. How do you think I could make this happen?
