Tutorial on Microsoft Frontpage and Web Development

FrontPage is the web development application of the Microsoft Office Suite. It allows you to create and edit your web pages and web site in a graphical user interface, such as Word. You don’t need to know how to program using HTML to create a web site using FrontPage. However, at times it will be helpful to be familiar with certain HTML tags, such as <p> (paragraph), <br> (line break), <b> (bold>, and the heading tags, such as <h1> and <h2>. When you need to, FrontPage allows you to go behind the scenes and examine and edit the actual HTML code, if desired.

This will show you how to use some of FrontPage’s features, such as working with files and folders, creating and editing tables, making hyperlinks to other web pages, inserting graphics into your web pages, using compression for your pages, and other tips and techniques. All of the features demonstrated here are also available in Word 2003.
