    Beginner CSS Help ?

    As a beginner with HTML, I could use some help getting started with HTML and CSS. This is what I would like to do for now. I would like to create templates with the appearance of frames, that is, one side of the page (left side) with a different background, along with a list of links, small images, pull down (drop) menus, etc., and the other side of the page (right side), the main part of the page, with a different background, main text, images, more links, pull down (drop) menus, etc.

    I'm also interested in having a background that doesn't move when you scroll up/down the page.

    What is the easiest way to get started, without having to read hundreds of pages of manuals, and/or many webpages. Thanks.

    Code:
    <body background="backdrop.jpg" bgproperties="fixed">

    Hi there ALL,
    <body background="backdrop.jpg" bgproperties="fixed">
    This is not the sort of advise that you should present to a newcomer to HTML.
    Putting aside the fact that backgound is a deprecated attribute, bgproperties is an IE only attribute, which is worse than deprecated.

    You really should be guiding members to discover the delights of CSS, not encouraging them to use twentieth century coding.

    Hi there ALL,

    I don't mean to get on your back, but this is condescendinig to the oringinal poster and should not be an excuse for encouraging poor coding practise.
