Chapter 30. Office XP with FrontPage: Wh... > Publishing Directly to Web Sites

Publishing Directly to Web Sites

The Web authoring features enable each Office XP application to publish its document directly to the Web server on which your Web site resides. You have two ways to accomplish this publishing: the Save As feature and the Publish Web feature. These two features work hand in hand—the Publish Web feature is available through the Save As dialog box (except in FrontPage itself, where the two are separated).

Let's say you're working on a PowerPoint slide show, and you decide to make the slide show available on your Web site and invite everybody you know with professional interest in the topic to explore it. You could, of course, save the file in PowerPoint format (with a .ppt extension), launch FrontPage, and then bring the file into the site by using FrontPage's Import Wizard. The problem with this approach is that Internet Explorer is the only browser that will natively display .ppt files (although add-ons to Netscape and other browsers will allow this as well). Besides, .ppt files are too large for useful display on Web sites. You instead should use the Save As dialog box in PowerPoint to save the file as a Web document with the .htm extension, open FrontPage, and import this HTML file into the Web. However, both these procedures are unnecessary.
