Re: Block-Container within page margin
Hi, I've done some messing around with this problem. If I set the left position of the block at beyond -0.6 and specify a background colour for the block, the block renders with the background colour, but not with the image. BTW, I have tried setting overflow to visible, but this seems to make no difference.
