You mean a Rollover Image.

The way I would do this is to add the icon as a background via CSS and change tha hover state to replace the Icon with a black one (if you were clever you would use a Sprite). In a similar way this page has the icons added in the fields via CSS http://www.deltadesign.co/formtest2.html

No rollover on that example but…

Alternatively you could use an Icon font.

I’m afraid that I’m not so hip to the lingo… is a sprite where you’d have
both versions of the icon in one image, but set the image positioning so
you only see the one you want depending on the user action? Or is it
something different?

Yes I believe thats correct ‘sprite sheets’ I have actually created for developers before but never known how to add to a website - I have seen Walter demo how to do it somewhere though…

With a little bit of hand code it is possible in Freeway: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_image_sprites.asp

And for making my icon turn black when I rollover the text seems like a heck of a lot of work!

Everything is hardest the first time.

I worked with this method in Freeway Pro YEARS ago, before it was called sprites. It has the great advantage of loading once Instead of many times, when used for all ur icons.

I did suggest an Icon font as an alternative. There are plenty of free ones that you could use the same way as using FontFace or WebFonts.

Yeah I did look at that thanks - It seemed complicated. Look at these http://fortawesome.github.com/Font-Awesome/

2.0 has the same email icon I use - but when I looked at adding it - at the bottom of the page, I was at a lost

OK - another method which you should find easier. Using the CSS Menu action

I suspect you will want to use transparent Pngs for your images.

Here is another example that uses FontFace to display a web font for the envelope
