Hi, please could somebody assist me with the following query
- I am a newcomer to Dreamweaver / Fireworks MX, I am looking for
the best way to create a link from a file that I have created in
Fireworks MX and will then be importing into Dreamweaver MX,
basically I have created a canvas in Fireworks that is 200 pixel
width by 50 pixel height. At the far left of the canvas is a an
imported image that is 50 x 50 pixels, I have then added some text
which just covers part of the remaining free canvas. I am wanting
both the picture and the text to link to 1 different webpage,
ideally for professionalism I do not want the rest of the canvas to
be a link (this will merge into the background that I have created
in Dreamweaver). Am I right in saying that I need to create
hotspots for both the image and the text? if so how do I go about
creating the hotspots and then setting up the links? How do I
export the file into Dreamweaver MX?
I would greatly appreciate any assistance with this or a
pointer in the direction of some relevant resources.
Do you want the text in your fireworks document to be actual
text that you can highlight and read by screen-readers, etc - or do
you want stylized text that will more or less be a "picture of
If its the former (most likely), then you'll only export the
background image you've built in Fireworks. Using either tables, or
CSS - build an HTML page with that as the background of your table
or div. Now export your 50x50px image separately, and place that
into your table or div in dreamweaver.
Copy and paste your text into the same table, and style this
text using CSS.
