I have a template that I've created in Fireworks, and need to overlay html content in layers on the page.  However, I do not want the layers to move at all.  I want them to remain in the position I place them at all times.  What should I set the position of the layer to in order to keep them in place?

Urgent question, hence the points.

You can make them absolute..

example
<div id="Layer1" style="position:absolute; left:47px; top:21px; width:457px; height:180px; z-index:1">This layer wiil not move</div>

Let me know if this helps

Do I have to specify the dimensions when I set it to be absolute?  If so, how do I locate the exact dimensions?

Yes, left:is the distance from the left side, top is from the top, height and width is just that of the layer, NOTE the width takes priority over height, so AS IS, if you put too much text in there, the height will increase.

Testing it, OR useing a GUI like dreamweaver.
