    image positioning

    when i place a certain image (lightnin) above my css buttons, it makes my
    buttons inoperable. the buttons work fine, except when the image is overlapping the buttons extended vertical space.
    does it have to do with the way my css buttons are displayed?
    i'm using IE browser. here's my code and a url, if you wanna take a look:

    p.guitar { position:absolute; top: 17px; left:271px }

    p.lightnin { position:absolute; top:-24px; left:101px }

    .buttons a { margin-left:122px;
    color: #0000CC;
    border: 4px solid;
    background-color: #FFCC00;
    font: bold 18px verdana;
    text-decoration: none;
    border-color: #FFFF00 #CC9900 #CC9900 #FFFF00;
    display: block;
    width: 105px; margin-top:16px;
    padding-top:2px; padding-bottom:2px;
    text-align: center; }

    .buttons a:hover {
    border: 4px ridge;
    background-color: #FFCC00;
    font: bold 18px verdana;
    text-decoration: none;
    border-color: #00FFFF;
    display: block;
    width: 105px;
    text-align: center;}


    <div class="buttons" style=margin-top:302px>

    Remove the image lightnin2.gif and place it as the background in the body:
    body { margin:0; padding:0; background: #006 url(lightnin2.gif) no-repeat 101px -10px;}

    hey your code works great except, now part of the lightnin image is overlapped (hidden ) behind the globe image, because of the way i cropped the globe image (rectangle ). can i set up the buttons in a table and have it work? how would i code this?
