Love Fireworks CS6 preparation of CSS code snippets, but….

the code for gradients is not correct!

When I observed that my gradients were going right to left instead of top to bottom, I went in and changed rotation  -90deg to 180deg and things looked fine in Firefox — but I wasn’t REALLY understanding the problem —  Doing that made the gradients misbehave in Safari, which my client was using — He thought I’d gone batty putting a gradient band on the right side of  some home page widgets.

This morning I found this article:

http://foundationphp.com/blog/2012/10/28/fireworks-css-properties-pane-gets-gradient-wrong/

with a wonderful explanation of why / how fireworks gets it wrong and a better approach to fixing it.   It turns out I only need to modify the last rule that the smartest browsers will employ.  By modifying all of them, I just confused myself!
