    Relationship of Fireworks and CSS?

    jimweagle

      In using Fireworks to design web pages for a site can the common elements for text and layout be converted to a CSS external sheet in Fireworks?

          Fireworks is a Web graphics - layout/design - prototyping application. It is not a code authoring application. (Dreamweaver, on the other hand, is a very good code authoring application.)

           

          So, yes, you can export CSS from Fireworks, but it's very ugly and you will probably have to put in more time and effort figuring out which style is which, renaming styles reasonably, and sorting into an external sheet than you'd put in if you just wrote the external sheet from scratch in an application that is better suited to the task.
