  • You can use Fireworks to make menus. Open to a .png file and create a narrow object (vertical or horizontal) with objects that contain hotspots or links to your HTML pages. Use Firework's File>Export to output it as an HTML file and use Dreamweaver's Insert Firework's HTML into an Blank HTML page. Or, use Fireworks's File>Export to output it as a Library Item (.lbi file) and save it to your local web site folder.
