Using Hidden Directories with FrontPage Components

Hidden directories are important to web security and component behavior. Hidden- directory names are indicated by a leading underscore character.

FrontPage puts the special directory _PRIVATE into a newly created web. Browsers can't directly read files in this or in any other hidden directory. For example, if a site visitor tries to access the location http://www.mysite/_private/header.htm, he is prompted for a username and password.
