Hi all... I have a page which I am working on, it uses a table but I want to add a starburst on the edge of the table, actually breaking out of the table... Could I do this by adding a layer??

What I would do is use a DIV that holds only the table. If I wanted the graphic in the top left corner I would set the padding-top and padding-left to the number of pixels of the image. You could then set the image to the background of the DIV and place it in the top left without repeating.

Does that sound like something that would work for your page?

Thanks for that the only thing is the table is centered on the screen and what I want the starburst to do is actually sit in the corner of the table but half of it outside the table if that makes sense?
