(by right-clicking for PCs, shift-clicking for Macs), and
look for the option to "Save Link as..."):
and save them in the same directory as
the page you are placing the link on. Then copying the
following code into your .html file
will produce a button like the one at right below!
onMouseOut="document.ffbuttonpic.src='StaticButton.gif';" return false;
<IMG src="StaticButton.gif" border=2 width=150 height=30

It's easy! Choose one of the links below:
Random Fun Fact!
No, don't click it, just look at it. Now, make sure that
the "Links" toolbar is visible on your browser. If it is
not visible, go to the View menu, and select Toolbars ->
Links. If you need to, drag the Links bar down so that you
can see the whole thing. Now your browser should look
something like the picture to the right.
Now press the mouse button down over the link,
hold it down, and drag the link up to the Links
until your cursor changes and a black bar appears in the
Links bar. Now just let go, and voila! You have a button!
If your button shows the URL rather than the title,
you can edit your bookmarks to change it.
This is easy, too! First, make sure that your Personal
Toolbar (as shown in the picture to the right) is visible.
If it is not, then go to the View menu and select Show ->
Personal Toolbar. Now you should be ready to go.
Choose one of the links below, press down on it and hold
Random Fun Fact!
and as you are holding it, drag
the link up to your Personal Toolbar. The cursor
should change to a picture of a link of chain, signifying
that you are about to create a link. Now, just drop it. It
should appear right up there!
If the links shows the URL rather than the title,
or if you want to change the
position of your link in your Toolbar, just go to Bookmarks
under the Communicator Menu and select Edit, or just hit
Ctrl-B. Then you can edit your Personal Toolbar Folder.
