    Been giving feedback on websites on WHT. One caught my attention because it demonstrated something I wasn' aware was possible.

    It's at www.rackeasy.com

    [please note - I have NO affiliation to any hosting company - and apparently this design is a total rip-off from www.advantahost.com]

    Point is, I found he's set up gifs, and then managed to place text over them.

    So I'm thinking this is the secret of so many good web designs - I can see immediate applications for my development.

    Thing is...I don't know how it's actually done. Any suggestions?

    He did it as a table background, then put text in the table:
    Code:
    <table background="imageurl.gif">
    <tr>
    <td>
    Your Text
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
