            At it's defalt stage Fireworks produces tables that contain <td> tags, that do not set a width and height tags isnide the <....>. Imageready does! In Imageready, you can set a prefernce to include W&T statment, and working in Fireworks, I would like to the same thing.

            In other words: Fireworks produces tags that look like this <td....> I would like to have Fireworks produce tags that look like this: <td width="100" height="100"......>, so a cell width and height is always included. what is the simplest way of doting this. (I thought that I need to set a HTML style, but if there is another way please let me know)

            thanks

              Fireworks includes the height and width of the objects inside the table
              cell's.

                No, you don't want that, in all honesty. Using dimensions on cells is
                pretty much an exercise in frustration since the cells never wind up with
                those dimensions anyhow, or when they do, it's where you forgot you used
                them and now don't need it to be that size any longer. Those numbers are
                minimum widths/heights. Table cells can easily be forced wider/higher by
                content elsewhere, particularly when you use a graphics editor to write the
                HTML.

                The best solution is to learn how to create stable HTML tables, and then you
                can use FW to just create your graphics while you build the page in DW.

                  I understand that you might think this is not the way to go, and it may well not be, but I work within a corporate environment where my coders want the TD to have W&H, and it is an option in Imageready, so how can I make it happen in Firworks, becuase the code Fireworks produces now, does not have it.

                  thanks agian, everyone!

                    You can't. Fireworks simply does not have that option.

                      You need to educate your coders to proper HTML and tables, then....
