so I was at digg.com (http://digg.com) and noticed a cool trick they were doing to the search box in the top right corner. The search button is "overlapping" the text field and I could not figure our how they do it. I tried using z-index and negative margins but that was unsuccessful. Any ideas?

its an input box and next to it is an image , its not overlapping it is just that the image has a white curve comoing off it and then the circle, closer inspection it does seem to over lap it but id just use an image next to the input box.

Well I am actually trying to achieve a different result then what digg is doing, but to do that I need to an image to overlap an input. Anyone else have any ideas?

In my experience, if an image is overlapping an input box or a link of any kind, you won't be able to click on the box/link.

Do you have a graphical layout demonstrating what you are trying to do? That might enable people to envision your plan and offer better assistance for your specific needs.

If you go here (http://www.artifexproductions.com/contact.php) and type in invalid character, such as <, into the name field and submit the form it will return an error and an "X" graphic will appear to the right of the input. My goal was to get this "X" to appear inside of the input. For your reference, the "X" is just an anchor tag with a background image. The actions are being performed with javascript. Any ideas?

if that is true then how could it be working on digg?
