To use a left hand border properly you will need to have your page setup properly. This is done using Tables. The code below will work with any of the lefthand borders you might use. The only thing you will need to do is set the width to match the border width. I am not going to spend any time on what each tag does that is explained else where on this site as well as many other site on the web. This is also assuming that you are using a web editor that starts with the basic tags (HTML, HEAD, TITLE and BODY) built in.
(change title.jpg to your actual file name)
<TABLE BORDER="0" CELLPADDING="0" CELLSPACING="0" WIDTH="100%">
<TD ALIGN="LEFT" VALIGN="TOP" WIDTH="165">
I use a width of 165 pixles on this page because the border is 150, that way the text or images will start 15 pixle to the right of the border.
<TD ALIGN="LEFT" VALIGN="TOP" WIDTH="450">
The width in this statement will depend on you althought you need to be carefull not to make it to wide and end up with scroll bars at the bottom. This is the area your mainbody is in.
