Small CSS help

at the moment i have a image acting as a header and a footer inside an html block

I want the region between the two images to be black



if i wrap the whole thing in a div class and set the background color i get a black band above and below the two images.

If i make a div class in between the two images i get a white band.



the css i am using at the moment is



.brands-block

{

height:60px;

background-color:#000;

margin-top:0px;

margin-bottom:0px;

padding-top:0px;

padding-bottom:0px;

}



any help would be appreciated. You can see it at the bottom of this page

fixed. Once i placed the div inside the header and footer image i could use a -pc on the top and bottom margin.





.brands-block

{

height:60px;

background-color:#000;

margin-top:-10px;

margin-bottom:-10px;

}
