    I have looked around on tons of sites, and see it everywhere. I can't figure out how to do it though! Here is what I am talking about:

    People always make a picture for a background, than they can put text on them separately. Instead of adding the text on to the actual image file, they just put it on top of the picture with coding some how. It's pretty hard to explain in words. I have tried it with HTML tables, and I can get it to work somewhat, but it's pretty hard.

    Can anyone tell me how to do this?

    What you can do using tables is to apply a cell background and type text into the cell as normal.

    What you can also do is to create a DIV, and have a background applied using CSS and type text into the DIV. See here for some information on how to apply the style to the DIV.
    HTML Code:
    <div id="yourdivhere">
    In your CSS, the class name should be #yourdivhere for this particular DIV ID.
    </div>

    Okay well here is what I mean. I see it a lot on Neopets guilds, so I guess it is a good example. I'm not sure if you have to be logged into Neopets to view it, but here is the link: http://www.neopets.com/guilds/guild.phtml?oid=xswimx

    Can you tell me how they did that?
