Wow ! Now that's what I call a detailed question :)
It's not obvious, but try using the Gradient Tool. It lives in the colors
section of the Tools menu on the left hand side, with the Fill Bucket. To
get a perfectly vertical line hold down the shift key while dragging.

| How can I create a vertical gradient?
After creating your rectangle with the gradient fill--does selecting the
rectangle not bring up the gradient fill handles so that you can adjust the
fill as desired? -Tom Unger
Peter - Thanks! You answered my question.
To create a vertical gradient, I had to hold down the shift key while using the gradient fill.
Thomas - I had no idea there were gradient fill handles. Before Sunday, I had never even *heard* of a gradient, much less created one. I'm very new to Fireworks, but it's similar to Flash & Photoshop, so it's not very difficult to pick up.
Thanks for the comments on the video. :-)
