Thank you Al, Gordon and Sean. All your input is helpful.


Since I do have the images separate form the buttons themselves, and therefore starting from the top is mostly a matter of copy and paste - I've decided to do that. This is a self-learning experiment, so there is not actual deadline, and doing the details over will only help me recall how next time. I'm trying out your instructions now. I will be using Dreamweaver to finish the site design, so the buttons will be CSS.

Any further tips anyone has will be most welcome!
