Revealing Markup Tags with Code View

If you’ve used a Web page creation progam before, you’re aware that its primary purpose is to enable you to add images, format text, and design the overall look of Web pages, without having to enter Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) commands by hand. But FrontPage’s Code View makes it easy to peek “behind the curtain” and work with the code that controls how Web pages (and Web sites) work. That includes not only HTML and XML, but Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and advanced coding environments that FrontPage supports, like Active Server Pages (ASP), Active Server Pages .NET (ASP.NET), and scripting languages, such as JScript and VBScript.

Understanding Web Page Effects by Formatting Code

Whenever you want take a look behind the curtain, and examine the instructions that make text, images, colors, and other Web page contents appear the way you want them to, you need only to click the Code button beneath the page you are viewing and switch to Code View. The cursor is automatically positioned in the line of code that corresponds to the element where the cursor was last positioned when you viewed the page in Design View.
