How to have triple backgrounds using CSS

While there are CSS tags that could be added for links, font types and colors, and any other element of your page, this tutorial will only focus on the triple border background code.

The first step is to put this code between the and tags of your page:

<style type="text/css">
body {
   background-image: url( tile1.gif );
   background-color: #d8b095;
   margin: 30px;
   padding: 0;
.bordertile {
   background-image: url( tile2.gif );
   margin: 20px;
   padding: 15px;
   width: 600px;
   border-width: 1px;
   border-color: #d8b095;
   border-style: solid;
.toptile {
   background-image: url( tile3.gif );
   margin: 0;
   padding: 6px;
   border-width: 3px;
   border-color: #7c6758;
   border-style: double;
   text-align: left;

Now you will need to adjust the margins, paddings, borders and image url's in the above code to your needs

To apply these style rules to the section of your page and create the triple border, wrap your content in this code:

<div class="bordertile">
<div class="toptile">
