Full-width header and footer (tiled bkg image) with centered image over?

Hi all,

I've created a new CSS layout with full-width header and footer and fixed/centered content area of 960px. Both the header and footer contain a background image that is tiled x-repeat. What I would like to be able to do is add a 960px wide image to both the header and footer area that centers so it's inline with the content. I'm just not sure of the correct/standard way of doing this.

My CSS code is below. I have checked it on W3C and it validates as CSS 2.1 with no errors. Any assistance regarding the image over the background image issue would be much appreciated. Thanks for your time. Ginger

Do you have a link where we can see what the current result is that you are getting? It is usually easier to check out css issues like this with an understanding of what the desired look should be. We could then check all of the css that is involved and try to help you get it the way you would like it. Please post back with these details and include any screen shots or descriptions of how you would like it to be in the end.
