Now I just want to fill in a few more elements before we are ready to start making other pages from this. I got some things like backgrounds to attend to. This one here on the side instead of being a white background, I would like to make the background like the rest of the elements in the table. Now since this is one of those two areas where we did not insert a slice, you will notice that what Fireworks placed in here was an invisible image that is scaled to the size of the table cell.
I do not really need to place holder image in here either so I am just going to get rid of it by pressing Delete. And you can see exactly when we do not specify a slice in one particular table cell location. With that image gone, I will just change the background color to grey, just like the top one and we will be able to move down.
Now I am going to do a little alignment on the contact and copyright notice just like we did on the top. I am going to change the table cell properties of horizontal alignment to center and vertical alignment to middle, and set the background colors of these two other cells here to the light grey as well.
In the left content area, I will just click into the table cell and I can change the background. I will use this piece on the background of the flames. And underneath the flame location, you can see I have another place holder invisible image. I will just hit Delete to get rid of that and once it is gone, we will change the background of the table cell to the same grey color.
Now I can set the color of the rest of the page background over here down in page properties. That background is supposed to be the same dark grey color that we see here on the button based graphic. So I will just pull up to page properties window and I will move it out of the way so we can access that dark grey pretty easily. And I will use the background under the appearance category, and with the eyedropper tool I will select out of that grey bar.
Let me hit apply and we can see how that color is being flown into the rest of our graphic. Now just so we can see our place holder text just a little bit easier, I am going to take this opportunity to turn off the tracing image. I will just remove it from the tracing image dialogue box right there and click okay.
Now we will be handling the colors and some more of the styles in our next lesson when we will deal with the CSS content. So I am just going to leave everything black for now even though it is a little bit hard to read in a webpage as it stands right now.
The last thing I think I would do is select that table, clicking and dragging on top of it and I will align it to the center of the page just to make our webpage a little bit more balanced. And we will test to see how things are doing with F12. The program prompts me to save my changes for a test and I will click yes. And we can see in the browser it is looking pretty good so far.
