ok can anyone tell me how I can make images 'overlap' in html for my theme?

visit 3dtotal.com and look at the banners at the top - you'll see the top left corner of each banner has a graphic overlapping - how can I do this in my theme?

Is this possible?

hmm well I've looked at the bit overlapping and it says it's a .gif file, not a .swf? It's stored at http://www.3dtotal.com/home2/gifs_new/top/a3.gif

In this instance the images are not displayed using flash although that is one way of doing it.

The main image with the characters on it is a Table Background Image and the slice image you are referring to is actually a transparent gif in the table cell where you actually see it appear

In the true meaning of the word these images are not overlapping even though they are above and below each other.

The only other way apart from flash and the above example to create this effect is by using html layers but this can get messy and may not display correctly in all browsers.

Hopefully that makes sense

this can also be done with css using z index and positioning tags.
