1 Peter 1:22,23 - Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.

Web Design

Backgrounds

A background should enhance your site not overpower it – don’t let it detract from the content.

  • don’t use brightly coloured backgrounds that make it difficult to read your text
  • remember that sound files in the background will impact on the loading time of your site as they are often big in size
  • if you use a sound file in the background of your page give the user the option to turn it off
  • some browsers don’t recognise background images in tables and cells so don’t use this method
  • don’t use large images as backgrounds to your pages – get your message across with another technique
