    I have a unique problem.

    Here's what I want: I want two images to be along side an embedded youTube video which I have figured out.. however.. I have no idea how to add text on top of those images. I'll paste my code to see if someone here can help me out.

    Code:
    <center><TABLE BORDER="0" cellpadding="0" CELLSPACING="0" width="900">
    <td  border="0" cellpadding="0" CELLSPACING="0" align="left"><img src="EpisodeDescription.gif"/><img src="WebDescription.gif" align="right"/>
      <object width="480" height="295">
        <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/U4pEsyo3_Ko&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0&hd=1" />
        <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
        <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" />
        <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/U4pEsyo3_Ko&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0&hd=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="295"></embed>
      </object></td>
    </TABLE></center>
    WebDescription.GIF and EpisodeDescription.GIF is the two files I want to put text on top of but I can not seem to figure this out, so I'm just randomly messing around in Dreamweaver right now.

    personally i would use css and div layers with a z value...

    alternatively if you must stick to tables, make your images your background image of your table cell, then enter in text as you would do normally...

    actually just checked out that link and it describes both methods lol
