Full width footer/header on 960gs

Full width footer/header on 960gs


I have a problem I hope someone can help with.! I have partially (unfinished) designed a website in Photoshop and converted it to CSS with an online converter. Everything looks fine but I want the header and footer to be 100% width with the rest of the content remaining within the 960 centered grid.

Is there a way to do this, the online converter uses a slice of the entire design and places it as a background image but I don't want to do this as I have another image I want to use in the background.

I'd really appreciate any help that can be offered.

Many thanks

You will need to nest the 960px region inside a 100% div, example

max-width:1600px; /* this can be changed used only as a guide*/

div.960px {

Working with div straight off is not for the faint hearted but there is an extension by the old Interakt guys which makes this a breeze,


Besides that there is always the free DMX Zone 960 extension
