Sonic to my rescue again,Thanks mate.
The images i've posted were just an example but i have the real images here...
Should i make them the size i want them in the skin or will the swf scale?
Is it possible to include a background? I think that would be better than a colon if you get what i mean ie.. if you wanted a standard colon you just create a png the size of the background with a colon on it but gives a lot of other configs.
