          Do you mean a branching line, a double line, or a line with half dots?

              What version of Fireworks are you using? There are dotted lines in Fireworks 8 under the stroke dropdown in Dashed > Dotted.

              In earlier versions, you can try creating a brush(stroke dropdown > Stroke Options... > Advanced...) with really wide spacing, like 200%. Or another work around is create a textfield with a bunch of dots or whatever you might want, like this:
              ........................................

              Then create your path/line, select both text and path, and choost Text > Attach to Path

                If you are not using the recent versions of Fireworks, that already have a
                dotted stroke option, use the text tool and create a text block filled with
                periods or dashes and attach that to your path.
