    Draw slices, use Save for Web, learn web design to rebuild the page in DW.

    There's no way to answer this in generic terms. Actually, translating a page mock-up from Illustrator is no different than translating one from Photoshop.


    Slicing up may be the correct approach for certain pieces of it, while other pieces might not need slicing.

    I know how to create sites in DW

    Okay then, the only thing to do now is to use your knowledge to analyze the mock-up and plan your page regions. Draw up the divs and make decisions with respect to how the elements of the mock-up will be contained by them; as background images, image slices, etc.


    If you're looking for a simple method that equates to Illustrator file = (clean) Dreamweaver HTML/CSS, you're not alone. Let us know if you find it.
