    I want to get my links up in the logo / banner at the top of the page. (Above the grey, in the navy blue.) Just to give you an idea (and it's very rudimentary so brace yourselves):

    http://mm.vellosoft.com

    I think there are two ways of going about this, either hot spots in a single gif or the top divided into multiple gifs. Am I right on this and which way would YOU go about putting those links up there?

    I guess this would be a third way, on this page, you click anywhere above the tabbed gif links and it tells you it's html:

    I guess the top of the page is page with background and then a little ways down, you meet the first group of gifs.

    i would just use table cells or images depending on what shape. It would also depend on what type of rollovers i wanted to use.

    [Had to delete two posts I made that were erroneous: ed.]

    Tables, yeah, I can do that. Thanks. When I'm feeling more adventurous I'll see what those hot spots are all about.

    I'm sure you know what they are, but here's the site that got me thinking about hot spots and losing site perhaps of a more practicle solution (for now.)

    The picture of the guy at the keyboard makes me laugh.

    I wouldn't use images at all; I'd use white small text links, delimited with pipes ("|"). I might even be using that for WDF's new style set for vB3 (maybe).

    No need for the images, really. Just makes changing the text in the future harder (for example, internationalization).

    I would do it filburt's way myself, with images between the text links.

    However, since you've already got it done, might as well keep it how you're doing it.

    Just make sure to specify <img src="image.gif" border="0" on linked images, or you will get a blue border around them.

    It needed the border="0" in there, thanks. I guess ultimately I'll be looking for the utilitarian way to do it and I'll be going with text most of the time, but for right now I do want to see if I can do some mimic-ing of things I've seen on other sites.

    The small tabs look okay, the gaps between are a bit abrupt, but the big tab looks pretty hand-drawn. I'm only working with photoshop elements right now, so maybe it's in there with the big photoshop, but I'm wondering what you use when you want to get those kind of sign / cosign / wave / trigonometry (all that stuff forgotten from high school) - type of curves drawn perfectly for you?
