    Its just a gif. Right-click, save background as, and you have a copy to experiment with.

    Why would you need or want to?

    php is a server-side processing language. http://www.php.net/

    PHP?! That has nothing to do with PHP! PHP is a language so that the website, administrator, and users can communicate with the server, similar to CGI and other Server-Side languages. Some message boards are made in PHP.

    Yes, you can draw images with php. However, there is no need, you can just make one and use it?

    Traditionally, drawing images with php is is for dynamic uses, like graphs or text in an image.

    You can learn about that at http://www.php.net/image

    Anyway, there is a css method to do what you were talking about. It has some limitations for use as a nav-bar, but you can get the effect you're looking for.

    HTML Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    td.fade {
    	filter: Alpha(Opacity=0, FinishOpacity=100, Style=1, StartX=50, StartY=0, FinishX=200, FinishY=0);
    }
    .visible {
    	filter: Alpha(Opacity=0, FinishOpacity=0, Style=1, StartX=0, StartY=0, FinishX=200, FinishY=0)?, StartX=0, StartY=0, FinishX=200, FinishY=0);
    }
    -->
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    <div id="Layer1" style="position:absolute; left:8px; top:59px; width:150px; height:15px; z-index:1">Visible Text </div>
    <table>
      <tr>
        <td width="150" height="250" bgcolor="#000000" class="fade">The problem with this is that you must have a layer in order to have decently visible text since this text will all be invisible.</td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    </body>
    </html>
    The filter style is pretty nifty. Used style="filter: FlipV" in the body tag of a friends web site once for april fools day. Needless to say, he was not as amused as I was.
