I'll need to be doing this a lot and have seen many different methods using the image object, or using netscape layers (old 2002 tutorials), etc...

What is the best (simplest) way to create a small image icon and place it on an existing page.

Is this the way to do it? (syntax probably off)
document.images[name].style.left=x;
document.images[name].style.top=y;

When creating the image, is "new image()" the right/best way to do it, and then set css to make it position absolute?

I am having a hard time finding a good tutorial site for javascript. Any suggestions for good sites/books to get started?
