Try to make a glossy black orb with red lines in it, and add outer and inner glow when mouseover, and add some satin, and Bevel and emboss (maybe also Countor) to the "when clicked"

Just an idea
well that's one idea but i was thinking something more simple like KR where the K will overlap the top left corner of R, maybe glossy red with possibly a chromed edge. it could sort of be dim then KR lighting up on mouseover then the glossy black joining in when clicked. if only i was half as talented as some of u guys i'd be more able to put my ideas into practice!

here's the font:
knightfont.zip

P.S> Sorry am late getting back with an idea seeing how u created the theme already but i wasn't online much yesterday

I can try that I'll send you the PNG when its finished (Can't really figure out how to convert png to bmp while adding a black background )
