This is why its often best to write your own pop-up code etc. The
dreamweaver/fireworks code is very good/clever but when you need to change
elements/customise it can be very difficult to understand how to change the
js code.

In your example why not code them yourself:

make the pop-ups as a layer in dreamweaver.

Apply the show/hide layer on mouseover/out of the main nav image.

When you rollover a subnav you can swap image to your animated gif.

Hope that helps.
