Q&A

Q1:How can you change the appearance of a Web template?
A1: The colors and graphics in the Personal Web Site template and other templates are controlled by its theme. As you will discover in the next hour, themes are a way to establish a consistent and professional visual appearance for a Web site.

You can easily change the theme of a built-in template within FrontPage. You can change everything about the way the Web looks, including its background color, background image, component graphics, text color, and hyperlink color.

Q2:Earlier, you said that the home page of a Web site is index.htm. The company that hosts my Web site said that this page is called default.htm. Which one should I use?
A2: The name of a Web site's home page is established by the Web server used to present the site on the Internet. So, the short answer to your question is default.htm. Rename that page: go to Folders view, right-click the page, and then choose Rename from the context menu.

Some of the possible names for a site's home page are default.htm, default.html, home.htm, home.html, index.htm, and index.html. Many Web site hosting services are configured to look for several of these, so as long as you're using one of the ones they recognize, the site will load normally in a Web browser.

In most cases, FrontPage's choice of index.htm should work correctly. If you have problems, contact the hosting service and ask for the filename to give your site's home page.
