What code is needed so that this image is the bacjkground and so i can put text on it? Thanks
<img src=".../images/box2.gif" border="0" />
While it's not the best way to do it, in a pinch you could:
<p style="background: url(../images/box2.gif); width: 50px; height: 50px;">Here's all my text.</p>
The easiest way is to add it via CSS as a background image, rather than place it in your html. Is that an option? Otherwise, you are looking at releative/absolute positioning with z-indexes.
