    Specs:
    MacBook white, 2.0 Intel Core 2 Duo Pro, 2 GB RAM, 13" screen
    DW help images/background in a cell
    I tried to replace a slice by using it as a backgound instead. Then I'm going to put text over it. I'm using the steps in the Super Tutorial on "the Cafe". Too tired to get the link right now, sorry.

    I think the cell and the image need to be the exact same size. I think I know the size of my image. But I can't figure out how to tell the size of the cell. How do I do that?

    When you say cell do you mean a cell in a table ie a TD tag?

    if so something along these lines would fit your bill....

    Code:
    <td style="background-image: url('nameandpathofbackground.jpg');width:xxpx; height:xxpx;">
    where xx is replaced by the size in pixels of the image.

    Thanks, I'm going to have to look at that a few times to figure it out. I spent the AM trying to fix the html for the naviagation bar. Don't know why it would work on 2 pages but not the rest.... Was cutting and pasting up a storm - a bit scary, since what I know about html wouldn't fill a teaspoon.
