Hmm... If you're willing to drop the corners, try using two CSS image in the background, one with the top rounded corners and the spike and one with the bottom two corners. By adding a third repeating background image with the side borders, you'd have what you're looking for, but it would involve a lot of extra code.

NOW you CAN do it with css2 BUT you will need a whole lot more html....


<div class="speechbubble">
<div class="topleft"></div>
<div class="topline"></div>
<div class="topright"></div>
<div class="content">TEXT IN HERE</div>
<div class="bottomleft"></div>
<div class="bottomright"></div>


u may even need another div in between bottom left and bottomright...


split your speechbubble image up into its relevant bits and set them to teh background of teh relevant divs...

Actually, that wouldn't work well with the border he also wants-and here, fixed-width is definitely the way to go, so that you don't need so many extra tags; for example, for something like this, I'd give the header text of the bubble the top curves and pointing image, and then the footer text the bottom curves, to minimize extra CSS.
