    Problem Bringing Text to Dreamweaver

    pamgoode
      Hi, I've created a page of text on Fireworks, which is purple on a transparent background. When I import the image into Dreamweaver, it shows as chunky purple text with a splotchy white outline, making it impossible to read (and ugly). On Fireworks, I have text fill set to the desired color and stroke as no stroke. I tried changing the stroke to the same color purple, and ended up with bulbous lettering. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Pam

          Are you saving it as a GIF with a transparent background? You would have to
          select a matte color that is close to the purple background color.

          But using an image for text on a web page is a bad idea.

            Thanks Murray. Yes, I'm saving it as a GIF with a transparent background. I know that using an image for text isn't the best way to go, but I haven't yet figured out how to create text in Dreamweaver without having it change position in various browsers. Maybe that would be a better place to start.

              The problem you have in this case is a problem with understanding HTML well
              enough to create your pages so that elements on the page stay where you want
              them to. I'd recommend you start with some good HTML tutorials -
