I believe that you should save your swatches. I am not sure if they can be saved within your document, or only separately (as .act file), though.
As to Kuler, the nice thing about it that it allows you to create and save your own color schemes, within Kuler itself! You can then have access to these color schemes from everywhere! After you open a certain color scheme, saved in Kuler, you can export it and then use in Fireworks, Illustrator, etc.
Hope this helps you, at least a little bit!
Thanks. I sort of worked it out myself, but the info about saving within Kuler is especially helpful. I'll check that out ASAP!
Glad I helped!
Kuler and the option to save the color schemes inside it, then export them, is a real timesaver! Try it!
Note: A future version of Fireworks will maybe support also .ase (Adobe color scheme files?) which will allow even easier exchange of color schemes between Illustrator, Photoshop, Fireworks and Kuler!
With the vector shape filled with the color you want to save selected, move your cursor over the ewatches panel. The curser will turn into a paint bucket. Click on a blank area of the swatches panel and the color will be added to the bottom row.
