Odd shaped rollovers??? - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hi everyone, I have been asked to develope an Interface for a hompage. The design is one where the rollovers to navigate the site are Wedge shaped and are in a circle around a globe. I need to know how to make ood shaped buttons work in dreamweaver4. My first thought is to use Fireworks . Would really appreciate being pointed in the right direction on this one. Thanks for your time. Rich Jacob firecraka.com Referring URLs [url]www.firecraka.com[/url]...

    the image slices will be rectangles- no matter what.

    what you will need to do by hand, or that fireworks will do for you--
    Is to do multiple disjoint rollovers of adjacent rectangular images.

    you can always place the image and create an odd shaped hot spot....then assign the needed behaviors to the hotspot.

    That's not consistent with the need for rollovers, however....

    If you want the rollover activated by an irregular area- such as a wedge of
    pie- you use an imagemap hotspot. then applie the rollover(s) to the
    hotspot.

    if the rollover behavior is applied to an image- the triggering area will be
    the rectangular shape of the image.
