My homepage at www.webudesign.progettoarte.org has a link for Contact.  I want the person to be able to click on it and they can email me.  I put a slice on it.  My question is what do I put in the object box to get it to work as an email link?  Thank you.

RE: adding Email

RE: adding Email

Thanks.  I did not explain myself correctly, sorry.  The homepage is a Fireworks 4 Graphic file. I did it as a graphic and then exported as html and slices.  The contact button is a graphic that I applied a slice to.  If I put the standard html coding in the object box after putting a simple rollover with the behavior button it does not work.  It throws all the grahics off and there is not a link to any email.  Hope this explains it better. Thanks for replying.

P.S. Was I supposed to replace image with an image. If so it did not work either. Hope you can help.  Thank you.

<a href="mailto:emailaddress">image</a>

RE: adding Email

first in fireworks just go to the slice over contact and type mailto:<your email> for that slice link that should make it work

or try replacing this line
 <td rowspan="2"><img name="index_r2_c8" src="index_r2_c8.jpg" width="49" height="12" border="0" alt="Contact us"></td>

with this
 <td rowspan="2"><a href="mailto:<your email>" alt="your email"><img name="index_r2_c8" src="index_r2_c8.jpg" width="49" height="12" border="0" alt="Contact us"></a></td>

one of these should solve your problem.
