Problem with wrapper background in CSS
Hi, I am really a beginner in making web pages. I have read tons of tutorials and I have made quite a progress I think. But I get stuck in one simple problem. I want to make a simple webpage with this layout: http://i49.tinypic.com/1r54l4.jpg
I have a body with background. I want this background to be visible above and under the png logo. Then I have canvas with menu on the left side with the same color background but different color than body. And then the footer with a little margin again. The code looks like this:
This is how the html code looks like. I skiped the footer for now.
background: rgba(255, 251, 208, 0.9);
With this I get just the webpage without the background color. And for example Firebug shows that the height of wrapper or content ends just above the canvas. I have tried tens of different settings but something was wrong every time.
<img src="pics/header.png" width=1200px>
Thanks for any help.
