I have created a website from scratch in Dreamweaver CS5. Created all the graphics in Fireworks CS5. When exporting slices to DW, the text is fuzzy and looks terrible live. What can I do to have sharp text. Tried anti-alias ( all options). Should I create text elsewhere or is there a setting to compensate for the pixel images?

A great deal of this sample should be reproduced as HTML text, not text optimized as images. This page sample is more of a prototype rather than a finished web page, because it's all graphics.
As for improving the text quality in areas where it needs to be part of a graphic, consider exporting as gif format (for solid color) or using the Selective quality feature for jpeg export.
When you export an image at a specific size, that's the size it has to remain. You can't change the image dimensions in Dreamweaver, otherwise you get the distorted/blurry effect you see.
You've taken this graphic here:
...and resized it to "100%".
That's not how web design works I'm afraid.
Your best bet is to stop what you're doing, and either pick up a book on HTML/CSS, subscribe to a site like Lynda.com, or read over some basic web design tutorials and come back to this venture at the beginning again.
