This is a good suggestion, and something I have used before, but I was 
really hoping I could get this to work purely with CSS. This would mean 
being able to alter the style of my site without having to create or edit 
any images. However, I do realize that this may not be possible. If no 
other suggestions are made then I will definitely use this idea.
