Continuing the discussion from Interesting first webpage ideas:
So apparently I got roped into teaching my brother how to do HTML. He's in fourth grade.
This upcoming semester I'm doing CSS, and I think I'm going to teach by example, since he sometimes had no idea what we were trying to accomplish until he'd done it himself. So I'm going to need some sites I can screenshot to show him.
For the first lesson, I'm thinking a single narrow div with text over a patterned background. So basically, like Discourse. any good example sites I can use to show him the effect? we'll be learning basically about background-image and width, nothing too fancy.

The solved exercise for that week:
(The file I'm giving him has text, and there's an image in the zip, but he has to style it)
