You cannot put the tree on top of the flash content no matter which software you use. Flash files always always place themslves at the top of the stack. Overlapping images won't work either. That's not a limitation of Fireworks. It's a limitation of designing for the web. Slicing it as I have done here is about the best that you can do with the design as it is.
Ok thank you, that was very helpful. Could I ask how you would layout the div tags out? Just throw it all in one giant content tag? Or split it up? And my other big issue would be that the bottom menu bar, has text converted to button symbols over picture backgounds? If I just slice them it will just make it all a picture right? What is the best way to export those so I have functionality that I have in my mock up? I greatly appreciate the help.
