Chapter 2. Editing Web Pages > WYSIWYG Editing in FrontPage

WYSIWYG Editing in FrontPage

Web designers working with a text editor typically keep a browser running in the background to display the page they’re working on. To preview the appearance of a page, the designer saves it from the editor to disk and then clicks the browser’s Refresh button to reload the file into the browser. “But this is crazy,” you say. “Why doesn’t someone invent a Web page editor that displays what the visitor will see—in true WYSIWYG fashion—and not a bunch of HTML gibberish?” FrontPage 2003 has done just that.

With FrontPage 2003, you can quickly create Web pages with all the familiarity and ease of use found in other Microsoft Office applications, such as Microsoft Office Word and Microsoft Office PowerPoint. To the maximum extent possible, FrontPage’s menu structure, toolbar icons, dialog boxes, and working conventions strongly resemble those in other applications. With the visual tools built into FrontPage, you can concentrate fully on your message and let FrontPage handle the mechanics. As a result, you can also create great-looking Web pages without seeing a scrap of HTML.
