    What code should I look into?

    I want a user to type text and display that text with an outline around it. I know its possible because I have seen it before when you and type your own caption on a funny picture. What code does that?
    I have something that kinda works, but not as well. It's a PHP hack. I also found this site: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/GDI-plus/OutlineText.aspx but I think it won't work on the web. I don't care if I get text or a picture, but I want a clean outline. Any ideas? Thanks!

    So you want outlined text on an image? Does the text have to be transparent?

    I'd have thought that the Jquery javascript library would be able to do what you're after...have a google & see if it fits the bill.
