    Putting HTML in Fireworks

    filegeek837
      I created a "Tab" interface with Fireworks. I did it with Frames...each tab you click on brings up a new frame....but how do i get HTML on each of those frames...you cant add HTML while youre in Fireworks......and once I export to Dreamweaver...it doesnt show the seperate frames to put my HTML in....I am kind of a newbie...any help would be appreciated...thx

          Frames in Fireworks are for making animations with. They aren't the same as HTML frames, which are not recommended for making sites with, anyway.

          If you're trying to make a navigation bar that looks like tabs in a tabbed browser, well, that's still just a set of images. Build your navigation bar in Dreamweaver, since Dreamweaver is designed for building HTML. Fireworks is designed for creating graphics.

            And don't use frames in your HTML unless you have a very good reason for
            doing so!

              You should also check out the Spry framework that ships with Dreamweaver - there are Spry widgets for creating tabbed panes and accordion panes, and Dreamweaver will drop the appropriate code into your site project for you.
