    Making text NOT an image.

    jhawtin13
      I'm sure this is a quick fix, but I cannot seem to figure it out.
      Basically I want the text that I include on the websites that I am building not to be treated as an image. I build most of the site in fireworks and then export it into dreamweaver, it looks perfect online, but the text cannot be highlighted and when you grab it, its like a picture, all the text goes with it.
      I want the bots to be able to read the text as well for key words....
      HELP

          Do the text in Dreamweaver, not Fireworks

            Remove the text (or hide it in a separate layer) before exporting your graphics out of Fireworks. Then add the text back in with Dreamweaver. You can then style your text to match (for the most part) via CSS.
