You could add the image as a background and type over the top. Best to use divs and kick the tables out if you are going to do this though.

You'll get there mate. Really would suggest moving from tables to divs and CSS for design. You'll be glad you did and stuff like this will seem like a no-brainer when you do :)

This can all be done with DW functions and in design view. You will naturally become interested in what DW is doing in the background and you'll find your own ways to tidy up the code it produces. I thought I'd never understand code when I started...but now I do :)

I'd really suggest a good book on DW or HTML and CSS. There are some book reviews etc. on this site.

cool i was once fluent in html when i was like 12, coan you beleive i now dont even remember how to link something i have to ref check the code lol. So a good DW book and CSS, sounds like a plan. Can you tell me a bit about CSS and why its now the preferred structure. Is it better than PHP? or is it not even related? thanks again
