'm working w/ a .PSD web template that has paragraphs typed in photoshop.
I'd like to convert these paragraphs to HTML text using ImageReady.
My problem is, when ever I export my .PSD files to generate an .HTML
page, my text is frozen within the image files. You can download the
sample templates at the following URL...

The PhotoShop help tutorial doesn't completely explain the procedure.
And my attempts to figure this out by trial and error haven't worked
either. I've attempted to
do the following. File/Output Settings/Slices Then set "Generate CSS"
and referenced "Inline"; but nothing. Your help is greatly

As far as I know, Photoshop is a graphics editing program, for
creating images.  I do not us it to do layouts or to format text. 
Your best bet is to redo the template in a layout / designer program,
such as Pagemaker, Publisher, Word, FrontPage, Dreamweaver or Nvu.

I believe you over looking something. Take another look at ImageReady.
 Look under: FILE/OUTPUT SETTNGS/SLICES. You'll see "Generate CSS".
Also, take a closer look at at the files supplied by this template
maker linked above.  If you check the creation dates of the files,
you'll notice the CSS, html and image files were created at the same
moment. They were generated from an image editing software. The text
within the .PSD file results as text in the .HTML file. There has to
be an explanation or procedure for this. That's what I need to learn!
