Hi Damager

I've been researching this for you. Apparently, from what I can see, to achieve the glow text is really only possible for those who have IE.

Now.. I believe you can make a button glow by using a button making program or a navigational menu bar making program.

It would seem that you would have to download these types of programs.

There was one I found specifically for dreamweaver that you can make online I think. It's not quite the same as what you have an image of, but it may do in a pinch: http://www.cssmenumaker.com/dreamweav...

I would encourage you to google this and then download the program that would suit your needs.

Sorry, I wasn't more help. Maybe others may be able to share their input regarding this.

Perhaps your button maker or menu maker has that option to make the text glow?

yes.. it is possible with css & html.. but from what I could see, every page that I went to said it's only viewable in IE.

Okay.. now I understand what you're talking about! It's not really glowing.. but the numbers do change color. Yes.. this is achievable. I believe it's like a image rollover. They used 2 images which are exactly the same, only one is grey and the other is red. Then, they simply swap the images on rollover.

I'm not familiar with adobe dreamweaver. However, you will need to create your images or use your button menu to create two images - exactly the same - make one a different color. Your button menu should have a rollover option. Does your button menu give you the HTML code or does it simply make the buttons?

then, I suggest going to http://www.htmlbasix.com/mouseoverima... Input your two images and then copy the script code. Put the "head" code into one HTML box and then drag another HTML box and put in the "body" code.
