Lesson 2. Designing a Page Interface > Developing the Page-Slicing Scheme

Developing the Page-Slicing Scheme

If you've ever developed a Web page in Dreamweaver or just by hand-coding some HTML, you know that most pages contain dozens or even hundreds of elements. The browser reads the HTML code that describes the elements, and does its best to render them. Looking over your Fireworks document, you can see dozens of objects laid out in various places of the page. Somehow, the elements in the Fireworks document need to be converted to HTML code.

Fireworks is fully capable of converting a complex page layout such as ours into HTML, but it needs our help. Specifically, Fireworks needs to know where to separate elements. For instance, we know that the lower-right 2/3 of the page is eventually supposed to be the main content area. We also know that it is distinct from the footer and the navigation bar. We need to communicate these divisions to Fireworks.
