Hey Greg, I would put the image in a div by itself, then lay another div on top of it. As long as you don't specify a background color or image for the text div, the lower div should show through just fine. You might have to fiddle with a z-index value for the text div--just give it a value higher than the pic div and it will "float" closer to the viewer in the stack. Hope this helps. richard -- Richard McFarland (rlmcfarland at attbi.com) 206-378-6942 --"The more you learn, the more there is to learn."-- > From: Gregory Wostrel <gwostrel at mac.com> > Reply-To: thelist at lists.evolt.org > Date: Thu, 17 Oct 2002 16:51:10 -0400 > To: thelist at lists.evolt.org > Subject: [thelist] image over text? > > -- > [ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ] > OK, I know someone here will have some ideas for this. > I am working on a site for a resort and what I want to do on the > opening page is have text that lies on top of an image.
