Hi, I have a picture in my images folder that I want to use as a background image in CSS. How do I link it so the image will appear?

background-image:url(?????);

I'm just trying to figure out how to format the link where the question marks are because the picture is on my computer, and not a server.

It shouldn't really matter if your image is on your computer during development. Just use relative links based on your website root. I assume you will be uploading the image to your server before launch?

Make sure you check out JC's useful article about site definitions; http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/cs5-setup.php get the set up right from the start and this should all just fall into place :)
