Product Description

From the Author

Your Comprehensive Guide To All of FrontPage 2000
Running Microsoft FrontPage 2000 is Microsoft’s largest and most comprehensive book about FrontPage 2000, its industry-leading Web site creation software.

First and foremost, the book provides a clear and complete reference to every feature of the FrontPage 2000 software. This is no dry, technical manual, however. The features are described in practical terms oriented to tasks you’ll need to perform if you want your Web side to be the best. What’s more, the book’s organization by task means that features you’ll use together are described together. This means you’ll develop a comprehensive view of the software in the fastest way possible.

The book is profusely illustrated with screen shots, sample Web pages, and diagrams that add visual impact and meaning to the text. Sidebars, Notes, Tips, Cautions, and Warnings explain fine points and ancillary topics without interrupting the main flow. Numerous See Also references function almost like hyperlinks in print, referring you to the exact page number where a topic related to the current text can be found.

The companion CD provides the code for all the Web pages and examples in the book, packaged as a FrontPage Web ready for installation on your PC. In addition, it includes sample and demo versions of various third-party products that work with FrontPage.

Running Microsoft FrontPage 2000 also addresses a variety of background topics most Web authors will sooner or later need to know. These include setting up and managing a personal Web server, working with the FrontPage Server Extensions, using other Office applications with FrontPage, and applying design principles in page layout, picture formats, typography, and color.

If you’re just starting with FrontPage, Running Microsoft FrontPage provides all the detail you need to get started and stays with you as your needs expand. If you’re upgrading from a previous version, it describes each and every new and revised feature in detail. And whether you’re new or experienced on the Web, it ties the process of Web site creation together like no other references available.

Thanks for your interest and good luck with your site!

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for an excellent program! 19 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Running Microsoft FrontPage 2000 is a great book for beginners and advanced users of FrontPage 2000. The book not only gives clear instructions but also develops the user's knowledge of HTML, DHTML and Tags. Well Done Jim Buyens!

3.0 out of 5 stars This is what the FP 2000 manual should have been 25 May 1999
By A Customer
Micro$oft is indeed a bunch of smart business people. I have used FrontPage since version 1 and have always found the user's guide ("Getting Started...") of little use beyond the basics. The online help is extensive, but purely and simply mechanical.
This book is a good book (although the accompanying CD-ROM is rather useless, at least for me), as it details almost every aspect of using the great program. I don't think it's a good first-time user's guide (for that check out the "official FrontPage 2000 book" from Micro$oft), but it can serve as a good reference to FP 2000. What I like about it is the accuracy of the information contained therein. If you get a third-party book (like "Mastering M$ FP 2000"), you get a lot of inaccurate information.
What we still need is a good FP 2000 resource book, like how to integrate e-commerce, how to create *good* themes, etc. Using FP 2000 is easy enough, but creating a good web site is a totally different, and very difficult, matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must-have for serious FrontPage 2000 designers 18 May 1999
By A Customer
A must-have for anybody using FrontPage 2000 to develop serious web pages. You'll probably want to supplement it with a 2nd title from a non-Microsoft Press publisher to get a great bonus CD-ROM ( I would have ranked this book as five stars if the CD-ROM had been more impressive ). This book focuses the reader to stay within the framework of FrontPage 2000, rather than hacking through the HTML directly, so very little coverage here of HTML or line-by-line explanations of HTML examples. FrontPage 2000 has finally matured into a very useable web authoring tool, and hopefully it will overcome the reputation of its previous releases which were notorious for clobbering finely-tuned HTML. So browse the FrontPage 2000 at your favorite local retail bookstores, then buy online.

1.0 out of 5 stars Are you kidding me!! 14 July 1999
By A Customer
Frontpage users need to understand that this latest version of FP has totally jumped into the realm of web serving. This book assumes that most FP users allready know or has some experience or knowledge of the admin part of web serving - give me a break! And what's the deal with devoting an entire chapter talking about colors! Wuz up with that! The section on PWS and FP2K Server Extensions are worthless. And that's the most important part of FP if you want to get into the advance component features. Need to rewrite this book in laymen terms.
