I'm using Dreamweaver ... I have created a 'banner' for the top part of the page, but along the bottom of it I want to place links on top of the image as text. Is this possible?

Something like making hotspots, but I can't figure a way to put text on those hotspots.

If I didn't explain it well enough, please let me know ... this is giving me a headache.

Thanks!

If you use text that is written on an image as hotspots, you must make the image an image map. If you don't wish to do this, you can use the image as a background of one div with an inner div containing the text links. Either way is doable.

thanks for answering ... so basically the image would have to be used as the background image in each 'cell' to make this work and then just
put the text in where I want it. Got it.

Problem solved thanks!

A shiver ran up my spine when you said "each cell". :whistling: Hope you are not using table tags for a layout. Unless you make an image map that has the text on it, which is a lot easier since there are many free online image map makers, you'll have to use the image as a background so the text can be coded in a way to have it positioned on top as a link. Good luck.

Okay ... I see that I will still have a few more questions ... but here is the link

The rollover links was what I was talking about previously ... I wanted to keep the 'header' as one image and have the rollover links blank and just put the links in using text in Dreamweaver ... what I've done though is create a 1 row table with 6 cells and created 2 images for each cell to provide the rollover.

Sure. Just make an id for the cell and set the CSS rules for it. Something like:
#bottomBackground {
width: XXXpx;
height: YYYpx;
margin: 0 auto; /* might be option since cells are used */
background: url(background.jpg) no-repeat center scroll;
}

Something like that.
