OK, this feels like a really dumb question considering how long I've puttered around with web stuff. I must be using the wrong search terms in Google (and this forum).

Anyway, my question is:

What are some recommended ways to create multiple images for buttons at once?

It's shockingly easy to do this in Frontpage; but I use Dreamweaver for the templates and PHP for the rest. I'm probably overlooking something, somewhere.

Is there a simple sample for overlaying text on a common graphic using CSS1?

Thanks in advance,
