Creating a whole web site in fireworks, even though fireworks gives the ability to design web sites quickly and easily, is not the right way.
For example the text should just be text written in html that browsers (such as explorer or firefox) can read, and not an image exported by fireworks. This causes web sites to have big heavy icons that need a lot of time to load. Also, searching machines like google or yahoo, will not see your web site and its links.
Maybe you should start using html and some css for that purpose.(http://w3schools.com/html/default.asp)
If you like check the new FWcs4v, which can export a true web site using css and images exporting option. A document exported like css and images, might not be considered as a complete web site though and always needs some editing, but i see that you seem to know Fireworks pretty good, so this may help you in understanding this process.
I am aware that text should be written in html and usually I do create websites using html and css, but for the purposes of this site I did it all graphically. It was designed more as an online portfolio whilst I was looking for a new job, so that companies could view my work before inviting me to interview. I was not looking to be found in a search engine.
The site I am designing is a newer version and will include html throughout.
Thanks for the advice about the 'next' buttons.
