To avoid layout issues, your best bet is to insert the button on the image in an image editor such as Photoshop or Fireworks then apply a hotspot in DW over the button.

That has been my solution up to now.. But, placing one image on top of another in a web page must be a task that happens all the time.. I just have not found a straight forward way to do it yet.

It's really not common.
It can be done via layering (what Dreamweaver calls APDivs) but you may still get layout issues with browser resizing.
in addition to John's suggestion, I will ask you, whether it would be a solution to place the hotspot only over a defined part of the image?
Thanks John and Hans
I guess I should accept that it is not common... certainly the concept does not appear in any of the books or help that I have been looking at. Lots on placing images... but non on placing images on top of images.
All this works but I was thinking there should be a better way. I am very new at this web site design stuff and my fear is that I will struggle with something.. make it work.. only to have some "expert" judge my work and think... that was a damn stupid way to accomplish it.
