Is it possible to have an Image map & an background image with text on top?
I've tried (this lets me hotlink the background image but can't get the text on top):
td.YourSource {
      float: left;
      width:800; height:444;
      margin-top: 0;
      }
<map name="templatemap">
<area shape="rect" alt="Tape" coords="230, 25, 320, 120" href="catalog.asp" title="tape">
<area shape="rect" alt="Edge Protectors" coords="340, 9, 460, 80" href="EdgeProtectors.asp" title="edge">
<area shape="rect" alt="Bubble Wrap" coords="475, 30, 572, 102" href="BubbleWrap.asp" title="BWrap">
</map>  
<td id=menuHome class="YourSource" align=left valign=top >
<img border="0"  src="BoxBizHomeIMagesOnly.jpg" naturalsizeflag="8" align=left usemap="#templatemap"></img>
<b><font size=3 color=white face=Arial>&nbsp; Your single source for<br>&nbsp;junk</font></b>

and I've tried (this lets me put the text on top, but not hotlink the background image):
td.outerHome {
      float: left;
      width:800; height:444;
      margin-top: 0;
      background: url( 'BoxBizHome.jpg' )  0 4px no-repeat;
      }
<td id=menuHome class="outerHome" align=left valign=top >
<b> <font size=3 color=white face=Arial>&nbsp; Your single source for<br>&nbsp;junk</font></b>


There's got to be some way to do both - please help.
