I have been trying to fix this with CSS. And I just can’t make it work. Why? Because I probably don’t know enough CSS. So, instead of wasting time, i am going to take a different approach.
You can see that the menu bar doesn’t extend all the way to the outer part of the frame like I want it to. the background is an image that is repeated many times
over and over so what I am going to do is alter the image itself to include the color portion that I want it to have. To me, this isn’t the best solution because it locks me in with that color, but I also figure that I’ll learn enough CSS along this trip to do what I really want later.
and you see the end result below. i need to tweak the borders but that can be done with CSS – even by me!
