Got the horizontal tile to work -- right now, you can see it on the art page
, right under the top navigation bar. (All of those journal entry design links will probably make no sense in a few days -- ah well.) I took the image at right, changed the colors, told it to tile across. At the moment, the display is messed up a bit, in that it cut off halfway down the image, which wasn't what I intended. But actually, I kind of like it chopped off like that. When the whole thing is visible, it's a little distracting, less of a subtle border. Hmmm...
It's not at all obvious that it's an Indian design, but I think I'm okay with that too. I'll know, even if no one else does. Secret ethnicities... :-)
On the other hand, maybe the site looks better with no border there at all. I'm okay with that too. Opinions?
