iPage web hosting doubt - can I host my website with an entirely new company?

First off, iPage web hosting doubt - can I host my website with an entirely new company? Hoping for any comment. Second question.. Whassup Guys....

I'm in the process of putting together a web iPage site and I need to know the best way to get a cool looking rounded edge effect when I set up my tables with a colored background. (something that will work with CSS, which I need to learn also...).

I've seen some sites that employ a .gif image at each corner to give the effect of a rounded edge..

Is this the only way to achieve the rounded edge effect, or do I have other options?.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.......

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an useful answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

I'm no expert on the more advance HTML, but I'm pretty sure there's no way that you can do that yet. And if there was such a thing in CSS2 or something, it would surely not be compatible with very many browsers...

Since when did we start sending people to live in outer space? When we start really doing that maybe there will be code for radiused table corners, until then use anti-aliased JPG or GIF images..

Well, we've got people living on that space station for weeks at a time. It's been going on for at least a year now................

Comment #4

Funny how some threads can go REALLY off topic...

Comment #5

Yeah, I know.....

I guess that's what I get for assuming we could code some round corners. I just figured if we could sucessfully keep pplo alive in a space station, then...you know......

Comment #6

Yeah I know, you do have a point there...

If you check into a program like Dreamweaver from macromedia, they have vector image options that output to raster images which are defined by slicing. best recomendation would be to search the macromedia iPage site and download the trial of Dreamweaver to see how they work, expecially since when creating a rounded corner manually with an image always seems to be 1 or 2 pixels off.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for the info. I may check it out later when I've got some bucks to blow..

I've never done any rounded corners before in a table, so I guess I'll try to learn how the conventional way first.........
