Check out the following link for a great tutorial on doing this.http://www.kirupa.com/developer/flash8/vid...ngMCbuttons.htmAs to the other questions, the little icons are called "Favicons" and some Google searches turn up a bunch of information that you'll find useful.As to XML, no clue to help you there.Hope this was helpful.Brandon

Buttons are cool when using the basic button symbols, but I find that when you want to get serious with buttons, that when you need to make it in a movie clip, especially for drop down menus.Just consider that movie clip as a little show in itself. Use invisable buttons or what ever to go to diffent points in the movie clip time line to get things done.Once you go to movie clip buttons, you'll never go back.Bill
