You need to position the div to have that default TOP (upper) white bar, and let Moddb staff know ( ) about to remove it. ;-)

You should be able to remove the bottom white bar yourself... only the top one must be removed by Moddb staff, or you can use an additional div as a workaround.

The website: nice, personally I don't like white backgrounds. ;-) Perhaps better could be silver/metal plate as a background, and white font, or just black background. ;-)

With divs. You can view the page source for more info. :-)

The pattern is:
<div style="background: transparent url(http://YOUR_BOTTOM_UPPER_BANNER.JPG); color: darkred; position: absolute; top: 340px; background-color: #000000; height: 20px; width: 940px;"> </div><div class="table" style="background: transparent url(http://YOUR_BOTTOM_IMAGE_OR_BANNER.JPG) repeat scroll 0% 0%; position: relative; width: 940px; height: 155px;"><div style="padding: 8px; line-height: 17px; color: #ffffff; height: 85px; left: 57px; position: absolute; text-align: justify; top: 25px; width: 452px;"><strong>--- TEXT ----</strong>

Well, first I make a 950x355px pic, then split it into 3 parts: the top one (the top banner) is 155px high, a pic from the BOTTOM of the image, which is 175px high, which is in turn split it into another pics, one is 20px high and the other one - 155px.

I.e. you have an unused img 25px high in the middle (355px - 155 - 155 - 20 = 25px unused in the middle, which cover the space of the panel with "summary members news tutorials downloads videos images forum stats").

Hard to explain. :-D Better to visualise it:

1) the top banner
2) the first banner/pic in above divs
3) the second banner/pic in the divs

If you are using Windows, I would suggest using a text editor Notepad2, found @ (I used to replace notepad with that - there's a tutorial on the website) or Notepad++, found @ (this is the one I use on Windows).

If you are using Mac, I would suggest Coda, found @ .

If you are using Linux, gedit, found @ is very nice and extensible. Kate, found @ is a good one as well. These come with GNOME and KDE, respectively.

There's a TON of editors with syntax highlighting, so feel free to experiment and find the one that suits you best.

Well, it's good to have an editor capable of doing the tedious work of e.g. creating tables or using <span>'s.

I shunned from using HTML editors, to be sincere. Most of them are too graphically overloaded (used only text editors being able to colourise the syntax).

I think that it is really up to how you code; I generally use php to generate my tables and use CSS to style them, so I have never have the need to lay out a table by hand. For the most part, I don't use tables unless I am using data that needs tabulation.

Yup, CSS is the best solution for styling, and generally editors able to insert tags / create function patterns can be a great help in making websites.
