I have a red background with black buttons or just rectangles at the moment. I am using Gimp to make images for a web page.

I want shiny black buttons on a vertcal list and I wonder how you do this with black?

Take a look at http://www.netdenizen.com/buttonmill/glassy.php

Try setting the color to 000000, the text color to ffffff, the background color to the background of your page, and the edge color to some color that complements other colors used in your site (try 333333 or 330000 as a starting point).
