layering a ticker tape over an image

I have an image on my website that appears on each page.  I have now written code for a simple ticker tape style message and I would like that to run in the same area where the image is located.  The image is large and the ticker tape would only cover a small portion.  Is it possible to do this in Dreamweaver with layering?  If so, how.  Or do I need to use Fireworks?

Thank you in advance for your reply,

you could do this with layers
Just set a layer with a z index of 1 and put the image in it
Then make a layer with the tape in it and set the z index to 2

This should do it.

No fieworks will not help this project.
