Just a little update to Ray's article today. After receiving many negative comments on his blog, emails from CMX and a not-so-subtle email from me, my article has finally been removed from the offending blogger's site.
Thank you to the CMX subscribers - and partners - who helped in this matter by posting comments on the blogger's site. You guys are great!
In an email response from the blogger, he stated, "...i had already your name in the end of this article..."
Yet again, this individual completely missed the point. Attribution is not a replacement for permission. Copying is not a form of flattery.
And hey, if you've ever seen my loud shirt collection, you'd know I wasn't that much into flattery, anyway.
Why the score of 2 - 0, you ask? Well, at the same time I found this blog site, I also discovered a commercial software site which had not only republished another of my articles, but had edited the article in such a way that it seemed I was endorsing the product. One email to them and the article came down. Ironically, at THAT point they asked how much it would cost to reproduce the article.

As the title indicates, my Fireworks article is now live on Adobe Edge. Feel free to check it out. I'm quite happy with the end result and I hope you gain some insights on the Fireworks work flow as well.
I have covered this topic in both written and video form here on CMX, but in this article, I atcually take someone else's single page design and build it out into a series of interconnected pages.
