In a business environment, you are often called upon to duplicate a printed layout, or to create layouts that have to fulfill a complex set of requirements. Yet, it’s often difficult to control the look of Web pages with great precision. Designers who are used to working in the field of traditional graphic arts are used to being able to position photos, headings, and other elements wherever they feel it suits the overall look of the finished page. You have to make “old school” graphic designers understand that, on the Web, pages appear differently depending on the viewer’s browser, monitor, or operating system. Some colors, borders, and fonts don’t appear at all, because the browser being used to display a page doesn’t support them. But by using Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003’s new design tools, including table layouts and layers, you quickly and easily gain a new level of control over the design of a Web page.
