    Links and webhosts

    I've made a table in which I'm going to use images as links. The images aren't pictures but just the table background color with colored text. But I want the links available in text in case the images somehow don't work on someone's computer. But I'd like a creative way to do this. The layout of my site is kinda mod and inspired from art deco. I know this is not much information.

    Also, I'm using Microsoft Frontpage because I'm very lazy and find it very easy and quick to use. But I don't know a good webspace provider that offers fp extensions and is free and reliable. I don't need too much space. (I could be dreaming though)

    You have a couple of options.

    You can use invisible (transperant) gifs in each of the cells and use the alt tag to explain the link.

    Or

    You can use plain text in each cell.

    as per below, both examples given...

    <html>

    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1">
    <title>LINKssss</title>
    </head>

    <body bgcolor="#ffffff">
    <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="2" width="600">
    <tr>
    <td bgcolor="#000066" width="33%"><a href="YOURLINK.HTML"><img src="spacer.gif" width="32" height="32" border="0" alt="DUPLICATE LINK INFO HERE">Or use text here</a></td>
    <td bgcolor="#d0ff38" width="33%"><a href="YOURLINK.HTML"><img src="spacer.gif" width="32" height="32" border="0" alt="DUPLICATE LINK INFO HERE">Or use text here</a></td>
    <td bgcolor="#ff00d0" width="33%"><a href="YOURLINK.HTML"><img src="spacer.gif" width="32" height="32" border="0" alt="DUPLICATE LINK INFO HERE">Or use text here</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td bgcolor="#cc6633" width="33%"><a href="YOURLINK.HTML"><img src="spacer.gif" width="32" height="32" border="0" alt="DUPLICATE LINK INFO HERE">Or use text here</a></td>
    <td bgcolor="#000066" width="33%"><a href="YOURLINK.HTML"><img src="spacer.gif" width="32" height="32" border="0" alt="DUPLICATE LINK INFO HERE">Or use text here</a></td>
    <td bgcolor="#d0ff38" width="33%"><a href="YOURLINK.HTML"><img src="spacer.gif" width="32" height="32" border="0" alt="DUPLICATE LINK INFO HERE">Or use text here</a></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td bgcolor="#38ffff" width="33%"><a href="YOURLINK.HTML"><img src="spacer.gif" width="32" height="32" border="0" alt="DUPLICATE LINK INFO HERE">Or use text here</a></td>
    <td bgcolor="#ff00d0" width="33%"><a href="YOURLINK.HTML"><img src="spacer.gif" width="32" height="32" border="0" alt="DUPLICATE LINK INFO HERE">Or use text here</a></td>
    <td bgcolor="#000066" width="33%"><a href="YOURLINK.HTML"><img src="spacer.gif" width="32" height="32" border="0" alt="DUPLICATE LINK INFO HERE">Or use text here</a></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    <p></p>
    </body>

    </html>


    Don't forget that in NS any <table background="image.jpg"> will tile starting freash in each cell. It won't display a large image over the whole of the table.
