Question Macromedia Fireworks/Dreamweaver alternatives anyone?

Howsit going, hope you guys are enjoying your weekend

Macomedia Fireworks:

This program was very very elite, as a graphics editor it was pretty standard... and I'm sure that linux has many many graphics editors which ar just as good, however I need one which can:

1) Export a PNG document with slices and links into HTML....
2) Create slices and links

Macromedia Dreamweaver:

Now again, this program was elite under windows, and aparently it works very well under linux too.. however I'm not going to run it under linux unless I can run Fireworks under linux too!

At the moment I'm using Bluefish as my preferred editor, and it is very very good! don't get me wrong, however it's missing a few features:

1) Preview an HTML document without mozilla
2) a GUI for editing a webpage

Mozilla Composer is LAME! with an emphisis on lame!

It is missing any type of form input! which I use dayly!

Thanks guys!

You can run both those programs under codeweavers's crossover office plugin. The problem is that the demo version only works for 30 days then you have to buy it.
