    If I want to make an site with the help of a notepad, how do I change background that everything is on? I know how to insert an image, but I'm asking about background, like how this forum has grey background instead of the white and has different colored parts everywhere. I only know how to make it white. :\

    Try this -

    <body BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF">

    For different color codes use a site like this - www.HTML-color-codes.com

    I've never used notepad before, so I hope that makes sense?

    Thanks both of you. I'll go try it at once.

    Edit: Another question, if I wanted to insert an image as background then?

    Indeed.

    I actually spent hours learning code so I can make the most magnificent of webpages for my assignment. It's really entertaining to make webpages with HTML.

    Did you get it sorted then aka?

    I like using HTML - it's complicated, but rewarding when you get it right! :wub:
