I believe you have missed the fundamental purpose and meaning of Freeway. This is abundantly clear in your many impassioned posts this weekend.
You would not expect InDesign to look at a printed page and divine a finished layout document, would you?
Now if you want to hand code everything yourself, then you may certainly use a background image on your server. But you have limited your possibilities for ease of design and freedom of expression. Have a look in the manual for the proper use of Page / Extended, Page / HTML Markup, Item / Markup and Insert / Markup Item. Those four tools represent a way to create nearly anything you like. And keep your eyes open for Extended buttons elsewhere in the interface.
You can do anything in this application, and I mean that sincerely. Just don’t expect it to be something it’s not.
As an aside, this list is a family. Threatening Softpress serves no purpose except to make you appear – quite publicly – to be one of the younger members of that family. It’s like screaming your head off in the middle of a mall because you can’t have an ice cream. On the other hand, if you ask one of your (metaphorical) brothers and sisters for help, it will be given – tirelessly and without hesitation – and all you have to do is ask. Blood is thicker than water, after all.
