Website question: Is this layout trick possible?

Silly question about CSS3 background images that change size to "cover" shifting dimensions. If you have an image that changes size while snipping off the sides to cover an area, is there a good way to predict its "cover" behavior, so that a piece of HTML text can follow right along with it, so as to fit over a certain spot on the image?

How do I get the skills to build websites?

I am interested in gaining the skills needed to build great looking websites, so I could eventually design them on a freelance basis, and on a more short-term basis, incorporate them into my grad school work (I am about to start an MA in Communications/Cultural studies, hopefully focusing on media ownership and the emergence of new media) and professional work eventually.

Help me to write algorithms

Can anyone suggest a book, website, etc. that describes the process of breaking a problem down in order to write a program. I have struggled for far too long trying to figure out how to write a program from scratch only to be stumped by the logic involved.

This question, I think, is outside of a specific language or philosophy (Java, OOP, et al.). It's just something I haven't been able to get my head around.
