I am trying to figure out how to place text on top of a link image. Instead of all kinds of explaining here is a link to some test code. http://dutchbarn.net/issue01.html I have found some other questions on forums that are simular but none seem to fix my problem. The 1st, 3rd, and 4th buttons perform the way I want. The second is an example of my attempt to place a heading on top of the image of course the image does not respond to the hover condition as the heading text is covering it. I can use an individual image file for each button with the text already part of the image but search engines won't see the text and it won't be part of the "html5 outline". It also does not seem to be a clean way to write the page as more downloading is needed than seems necessary. On the last button I used the image as a background but you will notice it does not display right when hovered over. Any suggestions?
