    My goal is to have a vertical text menu with about 10 boxes. I'd also
    like to incorporate rollovers for each one. I'd like to make them
    with a unique font I have installed on this workstation.

    Should I start with Photoshop as a table or something - then go to
    Imageready for the rollovers? Should I just start with Imageready?

    I'd like them to be editable, as I may need to change fonts, size,
    position, links etc

    Sorry in advance, I know the question is sort of broad. I just need a
    good starting point.

    Forget about Adobe Photoshop and build the entire menu in Adobe
    ImageReady. It's very easy to do and it will generate the JavaScript
    necessary to make the roll-overs work.

    Having said that if you know JavaScript you can write much leaner code
    than what ImageReady generates.

    You do realise that unless you include the text as an image the font
    changes dependent upon what the fonts the viewer has installed?
    A good starting point would be Fireworks, or even better Dreamweaver
    and Fireworks. Personally I'd rather hand code than use IR which is a
    complete dog.

    However, if that's all you've got then do it in IR. But be prepared
    for it to screw up any code royally.

    i agree with hecate, Use either fireworks or dreamweaver.

    Three GREAT replies - thanks so much. I'm farting around with
    Fireworks/Dreamweaver now. Fireworks seems to want to take a simple
    line of text and convert it to a button first, but then it's not
    re-editable (I don't think). But I'm learning...
