I'm not sure I understand your question, I went to your site but did
not find what you were talking about. But see if this helps: you
could make your graphic part of the background (yes this would make
it tile down.) You could make the text part of the graphic itself. Or
you could use layers (if you feel like venturing into DHTML, not
supported by older browsers.)Hey I got another one you could set
the image as a background for a table cell then type whatever text
you wanted ontop of it (this one may require a little playing around
be sure to check IE NS compatibility on this one) Hope 1 of these helps.
