I'm a newbie to web design. I've designed a site in fireworks
and want to export it to dreamweaver and want to know if there's a
way to change it from an image to html because i realize that the
code section of the site has no content info, except for the links
created in fireworks and ALT info i put there. i tried using
illustrator to do the design instead but that also saves the page
as an image. My only problem is that robots might miss the content
of the site if everything is in image form. I intend to use meta
tags etc but i wonder if that's enough. Plus i don't think it's
best to create an entire site as an image...every site i've seen is
in html. Please help me with any info/knowledge you might have
about this. Thanks.
You're right, you don't want to create your site as images.
What you need to do is learn HTML. Fireworks can produce an HTML
table of sliced images, but that table usually breaks if you try to
replace an image of text with actual text, so it isn't a great way
to go to produce a site.
So...resources! Here's a book I like:
XHTML, and CSS, Sixth Edition (Visual Quickstart Guide) by
It covers everything in small chunks and is light enough to
carry around and read.
