Using Backgrounds

You can add character to your Web pages by adding a background image or colors. When you add a background image to your page, any text or graphic you add to your page appears against that background. The size of the graphic determines how your background appears. FrontPage Express tiles the graphic across your page, which means it copies the graphic across the page and down to the bottom. Therefore, if you require a broad background, such as the sky and clouds, be sure your graphic is at least 640×480 pixels. If you prefer a tiled effect, such as a company logo, almost any size is suitable.

Tip

An attractive effect is to present a border down the left side of the page. To create this effect, the graphic needs to be at least 1024 pixels wide, so you don't end up with a second left margin down the middle of your screen. You also might want to make sure that you don't make the graphic any taller than necessary. If the graphic requires solid colors only, then two or three pixels is all that you need. Too simple to be true? Try it. This way, you will have a nice base and border for your creation. Also, if you use a graphic that is as wide as the screen, FrontPage Express cannot wrap the image. Instead, it repeats the image down the page.
