    Default CSS Drop Shadow on both sides of Centered Layout?

    Hello-
    I am new to CSS and am building my first website in all CSS.

    I am wondering how to create the drop shadow effect on the edges of a layout that is centered in a web browser...like on http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/la...2-fixed-fixed/

    I Would have the main content area and sidebar both be White, so basically I'm looking at a sandy background color surrounding the layout out there in no man's land, but want to make the white stand out from it a little bit by using a drop shadow. I've seen this effect on many websites that I always assumed used CSS, but I might be wrong.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    This can be achieved much easier by just creating one background image for your body.

    Sure, but that's not always possible with dynamic content. For fixed-width and fixed-height layouts, you're probably right.
