My typical workflow is to use Fireworks to save some typing-time by having it generate the basic div structure, CSS styles for text, and optimized graphics, then I assemble and optimize everything in Dreamweaver. Fireworks is a great tool, but it's not an "all-in-one web design and coding" miracle.

so using the new css export in fireworks can you set up the links in fireworks or should that be done in dreamweaver since fireworks can only export one page at a time using css.
You can export multiple pages in the new FW CS5, but each page will have it's own CSS file, so you will still need to consolidate, simplify, and optimize the code, but much of the heavy-lifting on entering style info will be done for you.
You can include links with the CSS export - FW will generate HTML with live text and links. You assign links to images by adding a link to slice over the image (remember that for the CSS export, FW needs you to put a slice over anything to be exported as a bitmap) and by using the "link" component symbol from the HTML Common Library. (You can also give a text object an <a> tag in the Properties panel, but you will need to edit the URL in the exported HTML.)
