FrontPage Overview

Microsoft's FrontPage is probably one of the more misunderstood software tools available to Web content authors. Most people tend to think of it as being similar to Netscape's Composer or one of the other popular WYSIWYG Web page authoring programs. If you've only seen the FrontPage Editor, it's easy to understand why you might think this.

If you consider the entire FrontPage suite, however, you realize that FrontPage is actually an end-to-end Web site management tool. You can use FrontPage to get a Web site's basic structure in place, to prepare each of the individual documents in the site, to check for broken links, to assign and track Web site support tasks, and to set up site navigation resources. Additionally, you can integrate FrontPage with an image-editing tool, such as Microsoft's Image Composer, to support your graphics work or with your browser to make it easy to download pages from the Web and edit them. FrontPage makes page design a snap with seven site templates, more than fifty page templates (including many for framed documents), and dozens of ready-to-use graphic themes and clip art images. Tasks such as connecting to a back-end database or setting up an advanced page component, such as a Java applet, become simple, thanks to supporting wizards and dialog boxes. In short, FrontPage can help you with almost any Web site management task you can imagine from the initial creation of the site up through maintenance.
