    Another option Mike,
    <p>
    Most paint programs have sample texture files that you can use to make a background with.

    It’s hard to elaborate more without knowing what type of paint software you use, or what image treatment software you are familiar with.

    How do you create hover buttons? Can I specify the default image for a hyperlink, and then specify the image for when someone hovers over it?


    Would this be done in front page, or in the .gif itself?

    Ok I found this. I made spaces before and after the < and > so it would display correctly here. Try making the "before" and "after" buttons of your choice and substituting in there names into the script

    The first code goes into the head of your page and the second code goes into the body:
    <hr>
    < script language="javascript1.2" >
    < !--

    /*
    Depressible Image Script-
    © Dynamic Drive (www.dynamicdrive.com)
    For full source code, installation instructions,
    100's more DHTML scripts, and Terms Of
    Use, visit dynamicdrive.com
    */

    img1=new Image()
    img1.src="up.gif"
    img2=new Image()
    img2.src="down.gif"
    //-- >
    < /script >
    <hr>
    < a href="whatever.htm" onMousedown="document.images['example'].src=img2.src" onMouseup="document.images['example'].src=img1.src">
    < img src="up.gif" name="example" border=0 >< /a >

    Ok I'm trying it out and haven't gotten it to work yet. Do you know where in all that script I'm supposed to put the "original image" and where I'm supposed to put the "hover image"?

    Insert the file names of the images you want to use into where it now says "up.gif" and "down.gif"

    And sorry if I have misunderstood you. This changes the button's appearance when you "click" it, not "hover" over it.:rolleyes:

    HOLY SH*T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D




    Man I've been working on this hover thing awhile. However, I used slightly differnent script...I couldn't get the script you posted to work, but I wouldn't have gotten it done without it. I can post the script I used in a minute.

    In order to conserve space, I will only post the important scripts....but I'm including basic html for an entire page in case anyone wants this hover script. (in that case my suggestion is copy off the script in your html editor (clear everything first) and then add the rest of your page. Note: the file "images\world_news_over.gif" ect ect are where you put the images, "_over"is for the "hover" image. Duplicate each script (in the header and body) for however many "buttons" you need and increase one letter for each button. I have added spaces next to the carets so it will display in this post.

    Well I had to make the images from scratch, and would need 18 of them...............so yeah.......after I make some more I will add them and upload the page. Hopefully later tonight I can have it uploaded, and by then the homepage should be a little different as well.
