okay, it looks like I need relative (because absolute creates the scroll bar)...
1) so if you like at the link I sent in secure post, the home page on stage...
and make the browser window smaller.... you will see the slider and background image in bar 2 go 'under'
how to prevent that from happening?
2) also, as you make the browser window smaller, the bottom of bar 2 gets cut off? how to prevent the background image from getting cut off (or rather)... the space for bar 2 is getting limited?
not sure what is happening, but the bottom of the background image is blurred/opacity is lighten, so there is know 'hard line' on the background image. EXCEPT you see it when the browser window is smaller.
we are getting there!
