Why Use the Microsoft Personal Web Server?

Some of the most powerful features of FrontPage 2000 (such as several Dynamic HTML features, interactive forms, and various FrontPage components) will only work or display properly when the page containing them is accessed through a World Wide Web server. That is, you must open the page in your browser by using the Web server address of that page (such as http://MyWeb/anypage.htm).

Nevertheless, you don't actually need to use a Web server with FrontPage 2000 to create a Web. You can assemble your pages into what is called a disk-based Web, which is essentially a collection of linked HTML pages and images stored in one or more folders on your hard drive. In this case, you view a page by using the browser to open it as a file by typing a pathname such as C:\webs\anypage.htm into the browser's address bar.
