fancy boxes

P: 71
I'm looking to add some boxes to my home page to put some special announcements and images in. I tried to make a table, and just select a color for the dark part of the border, but that didn't get the effect that I was looking for.

I'm guessing that I need to use some CSS work to get what I'm wanting. Attached is a link to a website, I'm looking for the kind of "shadowed" boxes that they have.

Can anyone help get me started on how to do this?

Those are just images placed in a table cell but using tables for page layout is stupid. I've never created shadows for borders but I know there are examples you can google for. Just stay away from any IE-only code. Borders are normally just border:1px solid red; but, of course, you are looking for something fancier than that.

In that link, there are two types of shadows. One with an image and another just using CSS. Hope this helps...
