Part III: Creating Advanced Pages > Adding Multimedia and Web Components

Chapter 9. Adding Multimedia and Web Components

Used judiciously, a bit of multimedia can juice up your Web pages and grab visitor attention. As always, bear in mind that visitors won’t wait around for downloads, so use FrontPage’s download progress indicator to gauge how long pages with multimedia elements will take to appear on screen (see page 16).

FrontPage gives you three basic categories for turning your Web pages into a multimedia extravaganza: videos or animations; background page sounds; and Web Components, which include such things as banner ads, ticker-tape marquees, and visitor-driven hit counters. FrontPage now includes more than 25 of these components. A few, such as Hover Buttons, you’ve already used. See Adding Web Components to learn how to put them to work on your pages. One other multimedia-style element—moving type in layers— is covered in Building Style Sheets and Dynamic Effects.
