I want the background color of a cell to fade lighter as it goes from left to right - how do you do this? do I have to somehow create it as a gif then add it as a background or can dreamweaver CS3 do it on spec?

I dont know how to create it as a GIF anyway , I do have photoshop , illustrator and fireworks

It is called a gradient and can be made as a .Jpg file to save space, if you want to make one using pictures.

When you click on the gradient, a line with a box on one end and a circle on the other should appear. Hover near the box untill the curved arrow appears then rotate it to change the direction of the gradient. In order to make it a left to right gradient you will also need to move the circle by dragging it. Try experimenting untill you get the gradient you want.

theres nothing that you mention in Fireworks CS3
when you select gradient a box appears from which you have to choose linear etc.... edge and texture can be changed... but theres no line with box and circle
