Do you use tiled wallpaper on your blog?

Before Windows upgraded from Windows 95 back in 1995 to Windows 98 and so on, when I had access to my original version of CorelDraw and Photopaint 5.0 for Windows, I managed to create tiled .gif images that when placed in a tiled manner in a column using the HTML editor called Composer, by SeaMonkey Browser Suite, at that time known as Netscape, I was able to take a .gif I created of a spiral notebook and it would look pretty much like a spiral that would display on the screen seamlessly.

Other patterns I have used before but this one I like a lot. This gif may not work properly if you download it directly from this page because I can not be sure if the image has been cropped for this article in the image wizard.

Have you ever used CorelDraw 5.0 for Windows? Tiled walpaper or wallpaper can be downloaded from a site here, that you will like:

Below is another one I created just for you to look at:

This image is probably in it's original size format but to find this out you might want to download it and use the tile function on your computer to see what it does on your screen. It may have to be inserted in an HTML document editor in a frame to work properly.

I do not use tiled wallpaper, though I have software that can create this, called "background magic" from Boogie Jack.

Sometimes I find it kind of fun to do. I know that columns should be shaded separately to border the primary reading area at the center of the page.

I have absolutely no idea how to do that, or even what it actually is?

You should be able to fill the background space within a column with a color. Have you heard of Dreamweaver?

I have heard of dreamweaver ok, usually in the context of VERY expensive and VERY hard to learn. emoticon :grin:
