    tested it and it seems to work fine. I've optimized it as a jpg and exported
    it. When I try to insert it into a dw mx page built w/ a template the only
    one that I can get to go in is the file with the .png extension. The .htm
    file always opens in it's own window. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Kierslee
     
    that to work just fine. Now I am trying to build my home page based on that
    template and in one of the editable regions insert another fireworks
    doent that has 3 more rollovers. The new fireworks doent has 3
    pictures that I've created and tested to make sure the rollovers work. I
    used the export wizard and chose the jpg over gif. I then exported it. Now
    when I try to insert it into the editable region of the dw page and test it
    the rollovers don't work. I tried to insert the .htm file because when I
    test that in ie the rollovers work fine. As I try to insert that .htm file
    it opens as a new dreamweaver doent. I hope this helps clarify. I've
    been reading some of the other postings to see where I may have gone awry.
    I'm at work now and won't be back to my project till tonight. Thanks for
    your help.

    Hmm.. I believe that Fireworks exports a true html file (html/head/body tags
    intact). So, I believe Dreamweaver is doing what it is supposed to be
    doing.. opening a new file for the fireworks generated markup.

    What you need to do is then copy/paste from the fireworks export into your
    template.

    I dont use FW generated markup.. ever... I roll my own pages based on the
    slices I export that way I have control of the layout. not FW. I also use
    PVII techniques as described below or alternative methods to leverage the MX
    template capabilites of repeating regions, optional regions, parameters and
    expressions.. (See Murray and my books support site for more tutorials on
    templates - addy in my sig!)

    BE AWARE... round tripping between FW and DW templates is the fastest way to
    make you lose your hair. Also be aware that Fireworks roll-overs (Depending
    on the methods used) can be very problematic in templates when you create
    child pages of the template that are stored anywhere other than the root of
    the site.

    You are truly better off learning the techniques as presented over at the
    Project Seven site http://www.projectseven.com and look up the tutorials for
    creating a menu system. These WILL work every single time in templates.

    Hope that helps.
