Troubleshooting

Once in a long while FrontPage 2000 gets a bit forgetful and throws you into a Page view sub-view you don't actually want. If you open a file in Page view and find yourself looking at an uneditable file as if it's in a browser, or even worse, a file filled with HTML coding, don't panic. Nothing evil has entered your machine. Simply check the three tabs at the bottom of the main window of the Page view and make sure that FrontPage is displaying the sub-view you want: Normal view is the WYSIWYG editing view most people work in; HTML view shows you raw HTML code; Preview lets you see what your document will look like in a browser window. Click the view you want.

Sometimes you'll find yourself having difficulty reading complex HTML code. To make it easier to read, use the HTML Source section on the Page Options dialog. Select Page Options from the Tools menu, then click the HTML Source tab. From here you can choose to Preserve existing HTML code exactly as it is, or you can Reformat it using the rules you define in the bottom half of the dialog. Several options are available, including the spacing before and after each HTML tag or container. You can also specify that HTML tags or attributes be all in lowercase, to help you distinguish among them. From the Color Coding tab of the Page Options dialog, you can carry the HTML Source display further by selecting different colors for normal text, HTML tags, the names of attributes, the values of attributes, comments within the code, and scripts. Using all of these features together, you can customize the HTML Source display precisely to help you read the code most efficiently.
