    exporting css help

      Hi there,
      Just wondering if anyone can help. I have a website mocked up in fireworks cs4. It looks as I want on the pdf so I want to export it as css and images. I have an image in the background with text running on top of it so I made a slice of the image and set it as background but it seems to mess up so when I have a look at it in dw, it is all over the place, I also seem to get an error warning when I export saying it is going to use absolute positioning...not sure why this is?
      It also seems to be crashing when I do a html and images export for no apparent reason.
      All in all it is very frustrating as I want to give the client pretty much what the signed off on. (I am a print based designer so don't have much experience with web design...thats why I was fw).
      any advice would be appreciated.
      thanks

          Fireworks CSS export can be helpful, but it does not negate the need to
          understand how to work with CSS and HTML. It's not an end run and
          shouldn't be considered as one. It is just a starting point. And it will
          definitely not be the answer for everyone, especially if you are
          building complex designs.

          I would suggest you read the following articles on Adobe's site and
          decide if this option will fit your workflow.

          HTH!
