    I need to build a website for a graduate school project, but I'm not very knowledgeable about how to do this. My advisor wants me to use OmniGraffle to create documents (layered documents, expandable flowcharts, flowcharts that link together), and set up the website through iWeb. I'm able to create the documents in OmniGraffle, but I'm not sure how to import these documents into iWeb (if that's possible at all). I need the dynamic features of the OmniGraffle documents (layering, expanding, linking, etc.) to be available to website users. Merely PDFing the OmniGraffle documents and posting them in iWeb won't give me the functionality I need with the site.

    So, my questions are as follows:

    1) Can OmniGraffle documents with dynamic functionality be imported into iWeb such that the dynamic functionality is available to website visitors? If so, how do I do this?

    2) If the answer to Q1 is "no", how can I make a website with OmniGraffle functionality without hardcore coding?

    I really appreciate any help/advice anyone has! Thanks!

    OmniGraffle can export your diagrams in various formats including HTML image maps and Visio® XML. There is no shortcut to learning how to use your tools.

    I don't use iWeb, but I'm sure that you can upload the resultant HTML image map output from OmniGraffle and at minimum link to it from a page created by iWeb.
