    uhh this section looks a bit dead but ill ask my question anyway.
    Im currently learning Dreamweaver MX (not 2004 edition) while building a website.
    What I have been trying to acheive is illustrated in the attached pics.
    Pic one shows an image with text on it. The text is placed on top of the image using a layer. In dreamweaver the result looks perfect.
    My problem is that when i preview my work in Internet explorer the text changes (pic 2 illustrates).
    Ive tried fiddling around with it for awhile but have had no luck so far.
    What can i do?

    If you ask me the second image looks better anyway.

    If you have frontpage, I would seriously consider using it over DW.

    I'll have a play around in MX2004 and see if I can help.

    They offer free full trials. That plus a little human ingenuity...

    My copy of dreamweaver was given to me by a relative who works in the design industry. They recently upgraded to MX 2004 edition I think.
    Sorry about the confusion between the two pics.They are the wrong way around.
    The second one is what it looks like in dreamweaver and the first is what happens when i preview it in internet explorer.
    Ive found that when i type in normal cell in a table i can get what i want.
    When I type in a layer everything goes wierd.
    basically i need to be able to type text over the image without making the text part of the picture. :good:

    Yes, I thought that was a little odd.

    Do you have a copy of frontpage accessible?

    If you would like, you can send it to me, what ever pages you need doing, and I will align them for you in frontpage, and send em back.
