What sort of "buttons" are you using? Are they form buttons (ie grey ones)? Could you either post some code or a link to your site?

You can create buttons using graphics - if you aren't sure how to use a graphics program such as Photoshop or PaintShop Pro, there are heaps of sites that offer free graphics (though they normally state they are for use on a non-commercial site).

For example:

If you search for "free buttons" on Google you will get thousands more sites to choose from.

This site offers button-making freeware:

If you aren't worried about rollover effects, ie you are  happy to just use the graphic as a link, you can do that with code like this:

<a href="yourlink"><img src="graphic.jpg" border="0" /></a>

where border="0" turns off the blue border that denotes it as a hyperlink.

If you do want to have a rollover effect, see the code I posted at:

Why do you need to load it into frontpage? If you have dreamweaver I'd stick with it, it's a much better program in every way. Unlike Frontpage, it's also capable of producing standard HTML without all the proprietary extensions.

Yeah, just use it like a normal frame, except set the frame src to "FILE.asp" instead of "FILE.html"

Thanks for accepting my answer rodgerbas... but if you give feedback next time we can give you a more specific answer - I assume it didn't entirely help since I only got a B?
