Nested tables with Image Ready

I have Photoshop 5.5.  I use ImageReady to create a skeleton of my html layout using the slice tool.

I have two questions regarding it:

1. Is there a way for ImageReady to create multiple tables out of the gif?  

2. Can it create nested tables?

From what little I have used it, it seems that it draws 1 table with only td's and tr's, but no nested tables.

Any help in this area would be great.
Michael

morya,

I don't believe you can, but with a bit of fiddling, you can get there in the end.  Try this;

1a) Take one copy of your image.
1b) For the bit you want to be a nested table only, create a table.

Repeat this for all the nested tables.

2a) Take another copy of your image.
2b) Using this as the 'master' create your table from this image but only use the outline of each of your nested ones.

With a bit of cut'n'paste in the HTML, you can put your nested tables in the appropriate cell in the master image's HTML.

Cheers - MorFF

ImageReady create very good JavaScript code but HTML simply sucks. You will have to rebuild it in any editor like FrontPage or Dreamweaver. Cut'n'Paste rollover images and rebuild the rest of the tables. IR will create only one table all the the time.
