Official Whitfield band site

Check out the band website. I did an edit on the XSilver and tweaked it to make it smooth.

A couple things though... When viewed on Mozilla, that centre box is smaller than it is with IE. This means it pinches the text really tight against the pictures I imbed in the stories. Any ideas how to space it maybe even like... 20 pixels wider?

Also, is there a way to get some sort of a faded image, behind all the main story text. That doesn't repeat for each new story. This code I

background-image: url(images/eyeback.jpg);
background-attachment: fixed;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: top center;
background-color: #EEEEEE;

had was from XNature theme, which has it, but it doesn't work in XSilver. Wierd eh? Any ideas?

Ok. For now I just made the title of one story longer to stretch it. Mainly I am curious about the faded back image. It is in XNature, but the same code won't work for XSilver. I got the image there, but it repeats for every story, instead of just being on fixed image.

See a CSS manual (and the XNature's stylesheet). You can make backgrounds non-repeating in CSS.
