Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

Complex image maps for one.

I once did an imagemap for which the image map definition
(ie all the polygons) was over 100k. It was a real map, with the
polygons defining complex boundaries (postcode sectors for
map geeks - click on your area and you get a lookup of all
registered users with similar postcodes. It was a carsharing

To do this with IR1 (which was the tool), you need to have 1 polygon
per layer. That was about 30 layers from memory.

Fortunately, I had an overlay of the boundaries to do the splitting via
the magic wand tool.

Why in God's earth would you have need for 70 layers? If you are
for animation or video, maybe a few, but not for the web. A slice *only*
slices *one* piece of the image.  If you are talking about substituting
rollover and javascript for different pages, then you will have to use your
template, open it up in dreamweaver, have fireworks open, go thru and
or relink your new links for each page in fireworks, export to dreamweaver,
and save the file with a new name.  Seventy times.  An easier way is to use
server side includes.
