Is an extension available that will allow creation of CSS for an html control that will repeat (template list) from an array. In C# I know that its called a repeater control. I only need to create the base design and export the CSS for this control.

I have not seen such an extension, but it seems like it might be possible to create one.

Couldn't this be done more easily in an HTML/CSS tool, though?

Sounds like a good idea for an extension. ;) I'd suspect the way it would work is you choose the XML/array, then the object you want to bind the data too in the fw document. It would probably need to be a Flash (swf) dialog so you could use ActionScript to help control how the array is rendered in the document. Just thinking outloud...too bad its not a native option.

Thanks for your responses. I was hoping to generate most of my CSS for my current site using fireworks. Looks like I will have to resort to manually doing anything i can't get done in fireworks.
