nope, gotta be html. The reason I want to do this is to create an interface where all of the colors can be redefined by the client just by changing the values in the CSS, w/out creating new graphics. The look+feel that want includes curved elements, so I'm trying to figure out if its possible or if I need to tell them that it needs to be redesigned somewhat. Thanks for all the help from everyone so far, I'm going to experiment with the "masking" gif idea.
