Grab my button!

Grab the code at the bottom of this post to display my button on your blog! (Please let me know if it doesn’t work!)  Though I created this blog in May, I have only been blogging consistantly for about a month now. I decided it was time I practiced my HTML skills by creating a button. I must say that my HTML days are far behind me, and I wish I’d paid better attention in college. I survived it, though, with the help of several tutorials.
siebar2The text box has been the hardest part, however, and I have attempted several codes that were supposed to give me a neat little box to display. Sadly, every code translated into the original image code once I placed it into WordPress. If someone has experienced this and has a suggestion for me, I would greatly appreciate your input! Thanks!
