Did you know that you could safely edit Active Server Pages (ASP) files in the Microsoft FrontPage 2000 Web site creation and management tool? New and improved handling of ASP in FrontPage 2000, combined with a few basic rules for implementing ASP, allows developers to feel comfortable letting users edit pages that include ASP code. This article describes how FrontPage determines whether to display pages containing ASP code in Normal (WYSIWYG--what you see is what you get) View or HTML View, and describes how to create ASP code that allows users to safely edit the Web pages containing the ASP code in Normal View.

Using new positioning and layering tools in Microsoft FrontPage 2000, you can now place elements on your Web pages exactly where you want them. These new tools enable you to layer Web objects on top of one another, group them together as a unit, position graphics and text by setting precise pixel coordinates, wrap text around an image or text block, and more.  To find out how to position and layer graphics, check out Part 1 of these articles at:

You can use shortcut keys in many ways with FrontPage, from accessing commands and toolbar buttons to outlining and editing information.

When you cut and paste this script in HTML view it will enable you to rotate a series of images in a page as a slideshow. You can customize the images and the time between each image. This script works best if all the images are the same dimension! Learn more at:

When you are creating Web pages in FrontPage, if you press Return, it is interpreted as the end of a paragraph and FrontPage inserts some space in front of the next paragraph for you.  Which is fine - usually!  If you want to suppress the space that FrontPage provides, press Shift Return instead of Return at the end of a paragraph.
