Why Use a Web Server?

Some of the most powerful features of FrontPage 2002 (such as several Dynamic HTML features, interactive forms, and various FrontPage components) will work or display properly only when the page containing them is accessed through a World Wide Web server. The consequence is that, to test the page thoroughly, you must open it 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 2002 to create a Web. As you learned earlier in this book, 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.
