To download any of these images, right-click (Windows) or click-and-hold (Macintosh) on them; then select "Save image as..." and choose a directory on your hard drive where you'd like to save them.

First off, the individual pieces appear below. After those you can see some samples of how this border design looks when the pieces are put together.

This is the simplest possible use of this set, in which each piece is used only once. The pieces are assembled within a table that's three cels by three cels; the alignment of the center top is set to
VALIGN="TOP"; of the center left, to ALIGN="LEFT"; the center right, ALIGN="RIGHT"; and the center bottom, VALIGN="BOTTOM". This aligns all of the border sections so that they line up correctly.

Remember to read the Layout Tips.

The version below uses a table border to show you how the table's constructed.



This example is exactly like the first one, but additional horizontal sections have been added to make the border wider. Since the outer edges of the sections are transparent, I've set the table background color to black in this example and you see that the whole interior area is now that color.

Remember to read the Layout Tips.

The lower version uses a table border to show you how the table's constructed.




Extending the border vertically is only slightly more complicated. I've just added <BR> (line break) tags after each vertical border section, to force the next graphic below the previous one.

Remember to read the Layout Tips.

The version on the right uses a table border to show you how the table's constructed.


1. Remember that each of these pieces is downloaded only once by the web browser. That means that there's no additional download time for each of the repeating sections.

2. You should be very cautious about placing text inside a border that's closed on the bottom; because the size of fonts will vary from one system to another, on some systems your border may develop gaps between the sections. It's safest to use a graphic in the middle so you have control over its size.

3. Be sure that your table sets its border size, cel padding, and cel spacing all to zero - otherwise there will be gaps in the design. On some browsers if these attributes are not set they may default to one, not zero.

4. This design uses a transparent background (the exposed interior is transparent) so you can set the table color to whatever you like, as in some of the examples.

"Trade them for a package of sunshine
and flowers.
If you want the things you love, you must
have showers.
So when you hear it thunder don't run
under a tree,
There'll be Pennies From Heaven for you and me."


"Pennies From Heaven" by John Burke & Arthur Johnston, 1936
