    Illustrator vs. Fireworks

    Hello,

    This is my first post here but I'm hopeful someone can help me out.

    I have a few questions regarding the most appropriate software for web graphics. So here goes:

    1. What is the industry standard for graphics used in web design?

    2. Which program is more suitable for designing web graphics, Illustrator or Fireworks? I'm talking about graphics like logos, backgrounds, buttons etc..., not photos.

    3. What are the pros and cons of each program?

    4. Can Illustrator do everything Fireworks can?

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Regards,
    Steve

    I have never used illistrator, but i have fireworks. Fireworks works very well for me and fits all of my needs in designing websites.

    Illustrator is the beast here. Fireworks is harder to use in my opinion. Saying that fireworks is extensively used and is a great program for web graphics.
    If you buy Adobe cs3 web edition you get both programs anyway.
