The page links to another page, which links to another page, and so on. Before long, you have the World Wide Web.

FrontPage is a powerful and yet surprisingly easy Web creation program that gives you a friendly way to create sites without having to work with Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) code. You can use the menus, tools, options, and palettes to add the items you want in the way you want them to appear. FrontPage also helps you work with what could be very complicated elements—forms, rollovers, animations, and more—in an easy-to-use, no-coding interface.
