creating a "hidden" link - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I'm in DreamWeaver 4, in a windows system. I have included a new graphic on our page and would like a "floating" link over the graphic. I can't seem to make the link "invisible". In Netscape 7.1 the link is hanging over the graphic just about where I want it, but how do I "hide" the link - so that the "link hand" shows up when moused over? It's not where I want it in Explorer, but one problem at a time, right?

    Your best bet is to make an image map.
    Have a look here [url]http://www.billowsprotocol.com/prepress_agents.htm[/url]
    The map has image maps to link to other parts of the page.

    Hope this helps

    this is only my 2nd answer so if i'm way off the mark - sorry

    but i think you might need to draw a 'hot-spot' over the torch icon

    take the layer out (with the word Torch)

    click on the image - in the properties panel you will see some cyan circles / squares etc. click on the cyan circle, draw over the torch symbol, click on the drawn circle and enter the link in the link box. this will link up to a page only when clicked over torch icon.

    is that what you mean? if you want the 'hand' to appear when there is no link you create a CSS style for it.

    hope this helps

    i'll try that. by saying i want a hand to appear, i just mean so that the user will know that they have moused over an active link.
    wish me luck!
