tvr4,
If you post an email address or send me an email at dhallentrprises@gmail.com, I will send you an Art Test file I created that should be what you are looking for.
Also, to do this you edit the letter H in Layer Content with Edit as Shape function. You will delete the points you do not want and that will leave one piece of the shape. You repeat this to create the other piece of the shape.
You should then have two layers that can be manipulated individually.

Hi tvr4,

There are several ways to create this logo.

A quite simple way is to screen a part of H with a rectangle, then select both, and choose Layers > Subtract.

ok I've done that now how do i save it as a high resolution image with a transparent background to use on the website?

I've tried a few ways but it seems to loose image quality when i export it. I want to be able to resize it any size i want and retain image quality?

"I want to be able to resize it any size i want and retain image quality?"
Only vector images can resize this way (in PDF format, for example). Web pages are mostly created using raster graphics. You need to decide what format you need.

When you choose a raster format, you should know that JPEG is better for photos (better compression, good quality), and PNG and GIF can be better for logos or images with sharp edges. Export to each format with the same resolution and copmare the results. Note that JPEG has compression/quality property.

When you are exporting to a file, you can set up the resolution and file format.
