and now Part Four. The Header.
The Header is a really fun piece. There's a lot of ways to customize it. If you are so inclined, then you can use Paint, Photoshop Elements, Pixel Magic, or even http://www.scrapblog.com/ to put some pictures and stuff in. But the basic header uses 2 papers. An interior and an exterior border.
Again, it's as simple as changing the HTML to read:
margin:0 auto 0px;
border:1px solid $bordercolor;
background-image:url (); background-position:center left;
background-image:url (); background-positions: bottom right; background-repeat:repeat xy;
margin: 20 px;
border: 1px solid $bordercolor;
(These are two different HTML codes within the Header section...interior, exterior. Two.)
Same on the margin. The more pixels, the fatter the border. 20px is a fairly thin border. Mine currently is 80px.
If you decide to design your own using one of the software programs I mentioned, then have fun. the standard size for a blog header is about 750pixels x 250pixels.If you want a supercute CUSTOM header, but don't want to do it yourself, you can try out this girl.... http://blogcosmetology.blogspot.com/
