Right click on these images and the wallpaper to download - please do NOT link directly to them as I will be updating often, and occasionally even removing sets.

As you may have noticed, this is not a "Frames" set.  Although frames keep page loading time down to a minimum   (once the frameset has been downloaded to a browser, it stays there as visitors view your site thereby saving time and bandwidth) they are not for everyone.

However... (ahhh!  you knew there had to be a "however" in here somewhere, didn't you!) side bordered sets also need a little bit of manipulation so that all browsers will be able to display them without the text or graphics "bleeding" into the side border.  You will need to be familiar with the use of tables, and you will need the transparent .gif that keeps the text from bleeding into the border - you can collect it below where I list the recommended colours for this set.

If you would like to use this set and are not conversant with the use of tables, but would like it all ready set up for you as an HTML file (just "add your own text"), please email me and I will send it to you.

Southern Ocean wide bar and/or blank title image

Cold... grey... relentless...  The Southern Ocean rolls on regardless of mankind and his puny vessels.  Look out of the porthole on this virtual ship, and you may well see the buttons floating by!  'Ware icebergs!

These graphics form a set - they were created for and on this background.   Try to use the individual graphics on any other background and I think you'll wish you hadn't!  As this is "linkware", the little graphics logo at the end of this page must be included on every page that uses the set with a link back to

And now, here's the full set for you!

Southern Ocean uses the font "Dragonwick" on the buttons.   If you have trouble locating it, or are unable for whatever reason to create your own extra buttons from the blank provided or on the large blank Title image,  please don't hesitate to email me and ask me to do it for you - you'll find I'm very reasonable about such matters.

Don't forget to grab the transparent gif that you'll need for your table in order to push your text away from the left hand border!
