Custom Solutions

So far you have seen how FrontPage 2000 can be used to significantly improve the rate at which you develop Web sites. Chapters 38 and 39 exposed you to creating Web sites that even include real-time database connectivity. In most cases, the understanding you have gained to this point will help you create most of your Web sites, even more complex ones. There is always the prospect, however, that you need to control your Web site in more ways than FrontPage 2000 alone offers. Fortunately, there is a fairly straightforward solution; it's offered by Microsoft for solving highly complex application development on the Web. This solution includes their Active Server Pages technology included with Internet Information Server, as well as incorporating server-side objects. If this seems daunting, don't be alarmed—these technologies and more are covered in this chapter.
