    tool tip workflow?

    supshur
      I have a workflow problem with a page designed in Fireworks MX 2004. There are some buttons I would like to have tool tip attributes. I can only manage to put them on the exported .html in Dreamweaver. So when I need to change the page in Fireworks and export it back into Dreamweaver, all the tool tip information is lost and I must redo all the tool tip attributes. It is exausting. Does anyone know how to write tool tips into the Fireworks files OR have another option that I don't know about that would give tool tip-like pop up information when the cursor is held over them? (I have tried to put the information in the second layer of the buttons, but some of the button splices overlap and cause chaos.) Thanks for the help!

          Yes. It's but one of the many reasons why using FW to write your HTML is a
          bad idea. And by the way, the correct attribute to use for 'tool tips' is
          the title attribute....

          <img alt="not this one" title="but this one"....
