    Is there any way that I can keep a layer over an image? What I have is a sidebar that's set up using a table. One row of the table, currently, uses an image for it's background, and the form / text is just put into the cell. The problem i'm running into thou is that when I go to add content to the page, this cell resizes and I get the image repeating, which I don't want.

    I tried just inserting the image into the cell and using a layer over it, but the layer was showing up in the wrong location. Thus, can I have the layer position itself based on the image or the cell rather than on the overall page? Or is there an easier way to do it?

    You could set the image to not repeat...

    background:url(whatever.gif) no-repeat;

    Even though if you would have used CSS for the layout in the first place, you wouldn't have the problem of the cell resizing...

    I'm intrigued. Tell me more about this CSS thing, if you don't mind. Do you happen to have any good "css" links, as far as examples, tutorials, etc?

    Here are some examples of CSS layouts(they look about the same as tables until you look at the source):

    http://www.ryanbrill.com
    http://www.csszengarden.com

    In the Zen Garden link, you can go here to view a list of sites that all were designed using the same source code. The only part that is different in all of those links is the CSS file.

    Here is a tutorial site:

    http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp

    and here is the name of a good book on the subject:

    "Eric Meyer on CSS" by, you guessed it, Eric Meyer

    Great! I will warn you, though, it's a tough journey... Meeting up to the W3C's expectations is hard to do...
