I. Creating a Basic Web Page > 1. Building a Basic Web Site

Chapter 1. Building a Basic Web Site

Many Web design graybeards consider their ability to write HTML code by hand a badge of honor. But for someone who’s new to the Web, this approach is pretty over the top. Just because you’d like to post your party photos doesn’t mean you want to become a programmer. Novices aren’t the only ones who need a hand. Pretty much every Web developer has popped a page into a visual Web editor like FrontPage at some point.

People use FrontPage and similar programs because they make the creation of Web pages fast and easy. Advantages of using FrontPage include:

  • Hands-on editing. Of all the benefits FrontPage offers, nothing beats its ability to let you see the changes to your Web page as you make them. While you’re working, you pretty much see pages as visitors to your site eventually will. You add and edit visual elements—like images and hyperlink buttons—by clicking on them directly. When you move or resize an object, the results show immediately.
