Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am trying to allow my buttons/link to cater for different text length.
I have created button images wider than they need to be and currently the images gets cut off on the right hand side.
Is there a way of attaching the right hand side button images to this so that the button does not appear cut off?

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

a.main_menu, a.main_menu:visited, div.main_menu{

	color: #666;
