Deciding Between Disk- and Server-Based Webs

Even though you don't actually need a Web server to create a web with FrontPage 2002, 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. If you want to view a page of a disk-based web in a browser, you simply type the pathname of the desired page into the browser's address bar—for example, C:\My Webs\A_Web\ anypage.htm.

However, some of FrontPage 2002's advanced features—forms, for example—require a server-based web to function. You can insert such server-based elements into the pages of a disk-based web, but you won't know whether these elements work properly until the pages containing them are published to an actual Web server and opened through the server. Consequently, if you want to take full advantage of FrontPage 2002's resources, you must install and use some form of a Web server.
