    I am a print graphic designer who doesn't want to take the time to learn Dreamweaver, etc. I simply want to get my work samples online. So I bought iWeb '08 and have been tinkering with it.

    My question about rollovers for link effects: the rollover capability works just fine if the link is just straight text. My problem is that I decided to drop some shapes behind the text links so they would look more like buttons.

    When I did this the rollover effects quit working! (Ironically, the effects work just fine when viewing the site in Internet Explorer but DON'T work when viewed with Safari or Firefox.)

    Am I doing something wrong? Is there away that I haven't found yet to make rollover effects for something other than text objects? (For example, if there was a way to do it, I could easily make gifs of before-rollover, after-rollover versions of the buttons.)

    I appreciate anyone's suggestions.

    The best way of creating rollover effects is with CSS. In the past everyone did this with javascript. I am not sure what iWeb uses as I never played with it. This should be easy to figure out though. Can you provide a link to the site in question? That always helps...
