I tried to put on text over an image button. For a easy localization I would not modify the picture directly.
My attempts with css magic and a image map failed becouse the text hides the image map. (i.e. the area on the button wich contains the text is not clickable)

Is the a taglib wich can render the picture at runtime (put text on the button image)?

I would use a normal link with the image as background, you can always use css to style the link.

Try this:
<head>

</head>
<body>
<div style='position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px; width: 111px; height: 18px; zindex=1;'>
      <img src='Yourimage.gif' border="0">
</div>
<div style='position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 30px; width: 111px; height: 18px; zindex=2;'>
<P>Push Me</P>
</div>
<div style='position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px; width: 111px; height: 18px; zindex=3;'>
      <a href='javascript:void(null)' onFocus="javascript:this.blur()" onClick="javascript:alert('Thank You');"><img src='empty_pixel_image_1x1.gif' width=111 height=18 border=0></a>
</div>
</body>
</html>

Javier.

Sorry I don't know.
But What I told you works as well I guess, anyway why are you putting the text over the image, why don't just make the image with the text on it and dispaly it as one?

I did read you comment and doesn't seem that you found the taglib, if you found it, I would appreciate if you can let me know.
