Appendix A. HTML/XML Reference

Appendix A. HTML/XML Reference

Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003’s core function is to translate your design input into clean HTML code that Web browsers can interpret quickly. At the same time, many of the features that are new to FrontPage, which enable groups of Web developers to work collaboratively, take advantage of the power and flexibility of XML. Hopefully, you won’t need to spend time manually altering your Web page code and can focus on designing pages the way you want to. But if you ever need to manually edit the HTML or XML that FrontPage generates, the new Code view tools will streamline the process considerably.

Code view, Split view, Code IntelliSense, and Code Snippets all help you work directly with your Web page code when you need to. Sometimes, making slight changes to the code and then seeing the effect in Preview mode can help you learn how the individual commands work. Occasionally, working directly with HTML or XML code can be quicker than using FrontPage’s toolbars, menus, or dialog boxes. To help you edit more effectively, the following sections present you with some of the basic commands found in virtually all HTML pages. If you can become familiar with them, you’ll better understand what you’re viewing and editing in Code or Split view. Table A-1 describes the most common commands used to define HTML or XML documents, and to format text, images, and other elements.
