I'm trying to create an input button using a sprite and span for text replacement. i'm not very good with forms though, and it's just not working for me..the background image isn't showing up at all, just a 120x55 grey box. here is my code
background:url('../images/home-search.gif') no-repeat scroll 0px 0px transparent;
<input id="search" type="image" src="images/home-search.gif" value="SUBMIT" alt="submit"><span></span></input>
everything I try just makes me more confused! lol. i tried googling it but I can't seem to find any examples or writeups on this. can someone help me?
