Q&A

Q1:Can I use my Windows 98 or Windows Me PC as a Web server?
A1: Surprisingly, you can with Windows 98 but not with Windows Me. Even if you could use a server with Windows Me, you probably don't want to tie up your PC by using it as a Web server. Windows 2000-based computers are better equipped to be Web servers. If you want to try, however, Windows 98 contains a special program you can install called Personal Web Server. This program provides the tools needed for your PC to operate as a Web server. If you use a slow PC and if you use a dial-up Internet connection, your `PC offers slow Web page viewing. Therefore, no matter how effective your Web page content is and no matter how well you used the Office tools to develop an attention-getting Web page display, your Windows 98-based Web server is probably too slow to keep your viewers'interest. At the time of this writing, Windows XP has not been released but preliminary information makes it appear that XP will fully support the serving of Web pages.
Q2:Can I include Excel graphs on my Web pages?
A2: Certainly. You can copy the graph to your Windows Clipboard, and then paste it directly into your Word- or PowerPoint-based Web page. An Excel graph is no different from any other kind of data that you can copy and paste into a Web page from any of the Office products.

Windows supports OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) technology that enables you to insert virtually any object inside any other kind of document. If you want to insert an Excel graph or a video file with sound into a Web page, you can do so by using the Insert menu from the Office product's menu bar.
