I was able to get the button made, but not without a little help from Ehow.com
I followed the instructions without too much of a problem. So, after posting the html code and link, I grabbed the html code for the image above, resized the height and width, and added it to the html code so that the correct image appeared, Voila'! It worked! Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? Just make sure you get the entire image html code incuding size requirements.
So long story short it worked, but not without gnashing of teeth as well as trial-an-error with html code.
