I use Fireworks CS3 to design many of my sites. I am familiar with the process of building the site in Fireworks, then slicing it, and exporting it to Dreamweaver. However, when I do this, the resulting HTLM document is always created using tables. Is there a way to export a site from Fireworks using div tags and CSS instead?

yep - look in the export settings - there's an option in there.

Thanks Limbo. I have seen File > Export > CSS Layers(.htm), and have tried it, but what I get is a document with my slices in div tags, but no CSS. I've read that one of Fireworks CS3's new features is greater support for CSS controlled layouts, but I can't find any evidence of it within the program or documentation.

Is it just a limitation of the program? Is it up to me to create a CSS to manipulate the div tags that Fireworks exports?

I'd say yes in this case. You'll find as you learn CSS that you'll drop the export features altogether opting to slice and insert your own images using the style sheet alone...
