Thanks to Tiffany at Deco-Rations! for the help a long time ago in setting up my first double bordered background. This layout works well with both Internet Explorer and Netscape in any resolution. (Another tip from Tiffany: Make sure you add enough text in the middle cell to fill four-five rows in 800x600 resolution to make sure the center cell stays the full width in Netscape.) The trick to setting the page up like this is to place your contents into one table with 3 separate cells. You will need a left tiling image, a middle tiling background, a right tiling image, and the image spacer.gif provided in the zip file below. I made the checkered background with my Gingham Background Tutorial.
NOTE: This double border will not work properly on a GeoCities website due to their coding that is placed on all pages.
You can copy the following source code and place it in a blank document:
