Form problem

Form problem

Form problem


I'm a very recent Fireworks/DreamWeaver user, and I thought I had done my homework before plunging into action, perhaps I was wrong.

The problem is that I’ve lost countless hours designing an entire webpage on fireworks and I thought I could just export it to DreamWeaver to make HTML adjustments, but with forms it's not that simple.

I've created images for the form’s fields and I’ve spent a lot of time giving them a nice look with the effects provided by Fireworks. But now I’ve tried to export them to DreamWeaver and I realize that I can’t just place the form’s fields were I had the slices, because the table that the program automatically generates becomes deformed due to the size. I tried resizing the form’s field but it stays with an unnatural look because it has to be a lot smaller than the table cell and I can’t remove the form’s field’s border.

My question is if there is any way to use my Fireworks design applied to forms?

Help is much appreciated.

RE: Form problem

probably not, you're most likley better off to use CSS to style the page, than images, which will slow down load time.

Sometimes, when my code just won't behave, I take it outside and make it listen to britney spears music, and when it comes back it's really well behaved. I wonder if it's suffering from post tramatic stress syndrome now..
