Chapter 10. Microsoft FrontPage Components > Using the Insert HTML Component

Using the Insert HTML Component

HTML is changing all the time. New tags are proposed—and often implemented—at an alarming rate. No Web authoring program can keep releasing new versions to keep up with all the new tags, so most of them come with some means of inserting an unsupported HTML tag into a document's HTML code. In the case of the FrontPage Editor, this task is handled by the Insert HTML Component.

To insert an unsupported HTML tag, follow these steps:

1.
Choose Insert, FrontPage Component, or click the Insert FrontPage Component toolbar button to call up a listing of available components.

2.
Select the Insert HTML Component to reveal the HTML Markup dialog box (see Figure 10.7).

Figure 10.7. You can enter new HTML tags using the Insert HTML Component.


3.
Type in the code you want to insert and then click OK. You won't see anything happen on the Normal tab, but you'll see something like the following on the HTML tab:

<P><!--webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" startspan -->
<OPTGROUP>
   <OPTION VALUE="1">Premium Plan
   <OPTION VALUE="2">Gold Plan
   <OPTION VALUE="3">Silver Plan
</OPTGROUP>
<!-webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" endspan --></P>
