Here's how you create image rollovers in FW.

Thank you for your response and for the link, which by the way, I already have a copy of that file.What I am trying to do is to utilize what I have already done in Photoshop/ImageReady. My files open fine in Fireworks, everything is there---all the layers, etc. except for the rollovers. The information that you provided tells you how to create rollovers using buttons or graphics. I am not using buttons. I am using plain text. When you roll over the text it becomes underlined.In ImageReady the way I did it was by using layers. I created the rollovers using the available web tools for that and I turned the layers on (for the underlined effect) and off for the regular effect. I sliced the text and the background that it is on. When the slices were exported all the graphics for my rollovers were created. I did not have to create two separate graphics. ImageReady did that for me. Here is the link of the web site. https://www.nfc.usda.gov. so you can see an example of what I am talking about. The top navigation and left and right menus are done using ImageReady tools. This whole page is layed out in Photoshop, then sliced in ImageReady and the graphics exported (with the rollovers created). Each rollover is a slice. I hope I didn't make this sound too confusing. :)
You should be doing these links in Dreamweaver, NOT Fireworks.
Image rollover buttons should be reserved for exactly that - images based buttons.
The rollovers will actually be done in Dreamweaver. I designed the pages in Photoshop/ImageReady. The slices are exported to create all the graphics that are needed. The pages are then composed in Dreamweaver and the rollovers are actually created there. I would do them in ImageReady so that when I exported the slices the rollover graphics were included (mouseon/mouseover graphics). I need to find out how to do that in Fireworks. I'm sure it can be done, but I don't think it's going to be as easy as it was to do in ImageReady. I think it's a little hard to explain how I did it in an email.
No you don't understand. I mean the links should be TEXT, typed out in Dreamweaver.
