Product Description

Amazon Review

Microsoft FrontPage 2000 insulates its users from needing to know many details of Web page mark-up and technologies but that hardly means it's totally intuitive. In FrontPage 2000 for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide, Nolan Hester tells you what you need to know about using FrontPage to construct Web sites. He goes beyond the basics of page layout to cover form interfaces, database connectivity and development of large sites by a networked team. Further, he extends his coverage beyond the merely technical, offering some design advice that should help the novice developer build Web sites that are attractive and stylish while at the same time easy to use.

The Visual QuickStart Guide format gained fame with Elizabeth Castro's HTML books. The format uses illustrations to great effect, placing lots of them adjacent to sequential instructions that explain how to accomplish specific goals (such as changing image contrast and creating a page from a template). Though the format doesn't leave as much room as other books allow for commentary and background information (and it's not as adept at explaining unexpected events), it leaves little doubt about what you need to do to get the effects you want. If FrontPage 2000 is your Web development tool and you have little idea of how to use it, you'll be happy with this guide. --David Wall, Amazon.com

Topics covered: The elementary and advanced capabilities of Microsoft FrontPage 2000. Basic coverage includes templates, text, images, links and tables, while deeper coverage includes banner ads, frames, forms, style sheets and database connectivity. You'll find this book useful as an explanation of FrontPage Express, as well, since that program has a subset of FrontPage 2000's capabilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding content and value. 8 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent, no-nonsense guide jammed with easy-to-read text. The supporting screenshots are first-class (and don't take up half a page either).
This book does not skip on content - covering topics such as Cascading Style Sheets in sufficient depth to enable even the newcomer to implement this less-than-easy subject.
I bought this book to switch from HoTMetal Pro to Frontpage, but even those with little knowledge of Web design will find it easily digestible ... it's a steal - and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners or as a quick refrence guide 2 Jun 2000
By Paul Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was very impressed with this book. It was the text book for my front page class and it had to be the easiest to use. And it doesn't have those stupid long tutorials. Mr. Hester makes it easy to get out of the book what you want. The only problems I had were with Front Page itself. My class found over 30 bugs in the software.

5.0 out of 5 stars Publishing Pronto 23 Aug 2000
By P. Sedun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Frontpage is a simple yet practical program - and the same could be said for this book. It's perfect if you want to get a simple webpage online in a matter of hours. It covers the features of the program for easy reference in the order you choose to learn them. This is my second "Visual Quickstart Guide" and I plan to buy many more - there is no easier/faster way to learn the basics of a computer program than these excellent, concise books.

4.0 out of 5 stars For Beginners Only 13 May 2001
By Eric Anson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am hard-pressed in how to rate this book. In terms of usefulness for me, this would rate one star. Others, however, may get a lot more out of it. This book basically takes you through all the menu items of Frontpage 2000. It does this well. The writing is clear and the book well illustrated. On the other hand, there is no information here you couldn't get through experimentation and using the online help. If you are uncomfortable with computers and want to learn to use Frontpage to do simple web pages, this might be a good book for you. If, however, you know a lot about computers but are new to Frontpage, you will probably find this book to be a waste of time and money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A visual book for visul people 21 Jun 2000
By Reza Ranjbary - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In teaching my first class of Frontpage 2000, I had to introduce a textbook, and it took me a long time to find this suitable one. It starts from cratches and gets you to a level which enables you to design your first website without trouble. Lots of helpful pictures with ample practical examples accompany the text. The only con of the book is that in the first two chapters, the author tries to introduce almost all the options and icons altogether which makes learners a bit confused. All in all it is the answer to the need of dummies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great "how to" book for beginners. 5 April 2000
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Nolan Hester's Frontpage For Windows 2000 provides beginning and intermediate users alike with a visual start which avoids long paragraphs of explanation in favor of sample screens and black and white visuals. Pictures provide excellent, quick study guides to the software, exploring how to use it and how to apply it to various projects.
