    Help inserting Fireworks pop-up menu into Dreamweaver

    birdpics
      I wonder if anyone can help me with pop-up menu insertion process. I create the menu in Fireworks and export it to Dreamweaver. I place the menu in a fresh test document and it works perfectly every time, but when I go through the exact same series of steps in my real page, I get a broken image icon. I just can't understand why the path is fine one way, yet gets lost in the shuffle the other way. The only two differences I can think of are where in the site folder the test page is saved, as opposed to where the real (archive) page is stored, and the fact that the archive page already has rows and columns and cells, where the fresh test page has just one basic table and nothing else at all. I even tried manipulating the code directly to make the sections in question identical, and even that doesn't do it. As far as I could see, my actual working site page (which won't accept the insertion) had one extra bit of code, namely

      <td colspan="4"

      Everything else seems to be the same.

      I am losing my sanity over this!

          Would it be too late to direct you to another menu approach altogether? The
          FW pop-up menus are not the sharpest knife in the drawer -

          Check the uberlink and MacFly tutorials at PVII
          ( http://www.projectseven.com/)

          and the Navbar tutorial/articles at Thierry's place
          ( http://tjkdesign.com/navbars/)

          Or to get it done fast, go here -
