Wow! I didn't realize Fireworks was such a hit among web graphics folks. 
Looks like I might have to dust off my copy of FW MX 2004 and give it a try.

I've been using Photoshop or Illustrator (depending on the type of 
graphic) and then either slice it up for the web in PS or export them 
for Flash. But exporting graphics from PS to Flash is a bit of a pain, 
so I might need to look at FW's capabilities in that area.
