fireworks table to dreamweaver giving me hell
Howdy Friends,

I've got a fireworks table that I've exported into dreamweaver , the nav bar is
on the left and the txt content is in the left center besides the nav stuff.
I want the table to auto expand as I add more content (in this case txt)
the only problem is that when I do this my table with the nav stuff completely
stretches and puts the buttons (gif files )out of position. I've tried "top" for
the vertical on all cells I've also tried putting a thin cell in between the txt cell
and the nav area and got to the point where I don't know what to try next its'
driving me out of my mind any help would be absolutely brilliant. I've included
the html folder if any body is kind enough(or has enough pity) to look. cheers and thanks in advance.

ps I'm sure you've guessed I'm pretty new to this suite

I've struggled with collapsing tables when they've been created in Fireworks as it creates complicated tables that you wouldn't necessarily do by hand.

Can't you just export the images from fireworks and then put the table together yourself in Dreamweaver ensuring that the part of the table that you need to scale is set to % so it stretches.

If you do want to use Fireworks make sure your columns and rows and inline and try to avoid steps in the way that you slice it, this can help to stop tables collapsing.

Just an idea.

Hi David , Very kind of you to offer . I should mention that the psd file is
1 and a half meg or the png which was generated from the ps file is
480 k is that an issue?
