How can I have a fixed width left margin for use with a background graphic that has a dark left region?

EXTRA ADVICE: Always make a background such as this 1281 pixels wide so that it does not "repeat" across the page on wide screens. Since 1280 is the maximum width, 1281 does the trick! ALSO: be sure you spell background as BACKGROUND! The most common bug here is to spell it as BACKROUND missing the G!!!

example

  The left margin on this page is set to 120 pixels. You will probably have to adjust this for your particular needs. This method gives you more control than the percentage method, ie WIDTH=80%.


source code

     <TABLE WIDTH="550" >
      <TR>
      <TD WIDTH="120">
       &nbsp; 
      </TD>
      <TD>
