    Oh, I see that the styles are on the html page. I take it I can use one of these two pages as a starting point, and fine tune them for a site right?

    Thanks for all your help!

    Could you whip up a tutorial please? I'm still experimenting with design etc right now. If I wanted to create a graphic button and have only the text be the clickable area, would I create a <div> element and set the background as the picture? Then adjust the link to the correct position on the picture? or am I completely off.

    Thank you

    Actually I do have a tutorial in the works on how to code layouts like this that I'll be submitting to SitePoint for publication as an article on their main site - if they choose to publish it of course.

    But in your particular case (the link image), are you talking about something like this?

    [link]http://www.absolutecross.com/images/tips/psd/plastic-tabs6.gif[/link]
    I want it so only the text is hovered over. you cant click on the silver part of the button, only the text. Does that make sense?

    Unfortunately that's not possible with CSS.

    The more a program helps you, the dumber it assumes you are. The more hand-holding it does, the more it limits your ability to learn what it is you're actually trying to do.

    No program can make quality stuff FOR you. You have to know it well enough to write it with a pencil and paper before programs that assist you like dreamweaver are of any use for productivity.

    I think far to many beginning designers now how to make a website in dreamweaver, and not really make a website.

    My big test is this: if you use an IDE or a WYSIWYG editor: *could* you create the website in notepad if you had to, or do you rely on dreamweaver's tools (or whatever you use) to get your job done. Ifo so you aren't a web designer, you're an advanced WYSIWYG user. No biggie, sites still get made, but you're not really a web designer.

    Should be easy. Most people have the opposite problem.

    If it were in a menu (where it likely should be), the image is on the li part. The <a> part wraps the text. Only the part wrapped in the <a> is clickable, and if it remains an "inline" element then its height and width are only that of the text.

    <ul>
    <li><a href="#">Thing1</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Thing2</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Thing3</a></li>
    </ul>
    The li will have to either be set to display: block (for a vertical menu) or floated left or right (for a horizontal menu)... only blocks (and floats are blocks) can have a set height and width. SO then the li is large enough for the background image. The <a> part remains the only part clickable.

    So if Dan says you can't do that, one of us is misunderstanding what you want. The top plastic picture has nothing to do with anything, right? Only an example of what the button part looks like?

    UltraEdit is my favorite. I can't stand things like Frontpage, Dreamweaver, etc. because of the bloat. Tight, hand-written code works best for me.

    I've always used Notepad. I'm not saying it's better than any others, but simple
    to use no frills sometimes the way to go.

    I use GoLive, which is apparently now GoDead, but I'm looking to learn more about the coding behind it so I can keep its code under control a little better. It's tough when you start with a WYSIWYG, but I didn't know any better.

    It's always interesting how a question like this is replied to. It always seems to be split the same ways too :)

    The fact is one can design a clean non bloated site in Dreamweaver just as you can in notepad. Dreamweaver has come a long way.
