If I make a navbar in fireworks with a font that I downloaded, since I export the navbar as an image then I do not have to transfer the font to the web for the font to show up on all computers. Is that correct? Thanks.
Correct. The font will be converted to be part of the bitmap, so no worries there.
The question you should ask yourself is if using FW code and static images like that is the right path to go when creating navigation bars for web pages nowadays. There are much better alternatives.
What kind of alternatives are you talking about?
