Creating and Editing Web Pages

Workspace Overview

In the Answer Wizard, type:
What's new in FrontPage?

FrontPage 2000 has a new, integrated interface that lets you create and edit Web pages and manage entire Web sites — all within one application. All toolbars and menus are consistent with Microsoft Office applications and can be fully customized. You can also use convenient keyboard shortcuts to accelerate common tasks such as opening webs and pages, printing, and many other commands.


Workspace Overview


The Standard and Formatting toolbars are displayed by default. They provide easy access to the commands you will use most often when working in FrontPage.

Showing additional toolbars   You can customize your workspace by displaying additional toolbars or changing the buttons they contain. On the View menu, point to Toolbars, and then select the toolbars you want to display. To add or remove buttons from toolbars, click Customize.

What you see in the main application window depends on the currently selected view.

In the Answer Wizard, type:
What is the Views bar?

The icons on the Views bar provide different ways of looking at the information on your page or in your web. As you work with FrontPage, you'll frequently switch between views to match the current task at hand — from the early steps of creating a page, to the moment a whole Web site is ready to be published on the World Wide Web.

When you start FrontPage, Page view is displayed by default. Page view is a powerful editing tool for creating and designing Web pages. As you enter text, place pictures, insert documents, create tables, make lists, and design the appearance of your Web pages, Page view displays them as they will appear in a Web browser. All HTML code is automatically created in the background and you don't need to manually edit any code unless you want to.

You'll begin working in Page view and learn about the other views later in this lesson.
