stretching images

    .button {
    background-image: url("http://www.exclusivefreegames.com/images/btn80x25.jpg");
    width: 80;
    height: 25;
    valign: middle;
    }

    I want that image to stretch to fit a table cell. Can anyone please help? :(

    I want to use an image as a background for my buttons. It was working for a while but the size in CSS isn't applying to the td, so i figured my only course of action would be to stretch.

    If you were going to stretch that image to fit the table cell, then I guess you'd have to set width: to the width of the cell not the img. However IMO that usually looks cheap, so you'd be best off designing a graphic to the exact size you want

    The better way to do this is to create a left and a right edge of the button and then create a filler image for the background. Use three TD's. Left side / center / Right side. Then the buttons will be fillled properly and won't look dorky from being stretched.

    Stretching is pretty tough on the CPU apparently. The filler option sounds best to me.
