sections of a Web site. By updating the master
template, changes are automatically made to all
pages linked to that template.

Front page has two major components
- The FrontPage editor
Utilizes a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to create
a ‘WYSIWYG’ (what you see is what you get)
environment for the designer. So when you create and
edit files in FrontPage, your work appears in the
display window exactly the same way it would on a
web page. The html code that builds the pages are
generated automatically by FrontPage editor. FrontPage also provides the user with an html editor where users can edit the HTML code
directly through a separate window view.
- FrontPage Explorer :
Which Provides a mean for users to immediately test their site . FrontPage explorer enables users track links, pages,
and other page component from within FrontPage.
FrontPage also provides a set of Web robots,
commonly referred to as Web bots,
which are specialized CGI scripts that provide
implementation for counters,
groups, full text searches, form handlers and link bars
(to name a few things) without having to do any
server-side programming. All these features are available from the drop-down menus
or icons to insert the application on your Web page and
FrontPage takes care of the rest. FrontPage Hosting thru HOSTITWISE WILL INSTALL FrontPage extensions
