About creating and designing web pages
Some of the content in this topic may not be applicable to some languages.
Web pages are the basic documents of the World Wide Web and are written in HTML
(Hypertext Markup Language). Web pages can either be part of a web site, or they
can stand alone. However, many features in Microsoft FrontPage are only useful if
you are working with a web site. For example, a link bar, which lets a site visitor
navigate to other pages in a web, is meaningless in the context of a single page.
To help you create professional-looking and well-designed web pages, FrontPage
provides several page templates so you can quickly create pages with a variety of
layouts and functions. For example, you can use a FrontPage template to create a twocolumn page or a page with a search form. You can also use one of several themes to
create pages with a consistent design. A theme contains unified design elements with
a color scheme, including fonts, graphics, backgrounds, navigation bars, horizontal
lines, and other page elements.
If you prefer to design and lay out pages yourself, you can start with a blank page, and
then:







Use frames, tables, or absolute positioning to precisely position text and
graphics on a page.
Add page elements, such as text, graphics, page banners, tables, forms,
hyperlinks, banner ads, and so on.
Add content that can change, such as marquees, hit counters, and time stamps.
Format text by applying styles or using style sheets.
Animate page elements and set page transitions for lively pages.
Set the background color, picture, or sound.
Create your own page template: a pre-designed page that can contain page
settings, formatting, and page elements.
Organize your web site using subwebs
A subweb is a web site nested inside another web site. The site that contains a subweb
is called a root web.
Northwind is the root web site
Human Resources is a subweb of the Northwind root web site
Job Postings is a subweb of Human Resources
A subweb initially inherits certain site settings (such as theme information and
permissions) from its parent site (root web). Use subwebs to organize your intranet
logically based on your organizational model.
Files and folders that FrontPage creates
Microsoft FrontPage creates the following files and folders for a web site:
General files and folders
images
Created to store pictures, videos, and other images.
pasted images
If you paste graphics files into pages, when you save the web site, FrontPage
prompts you to save the pictures in GIF
the type of pictures they are.
or JPEG
format, depending on
animate.js
If you use Dynamic HTML (DHTML) effects to animate page elements,
FrontPage creates a file named animate.js in the root folder of your web site.
outline.js
If you enable collapsible outlines for bulleted or numbered lists, FrontPage
creates a file named outline.js in the root folder of your web site.
Database-related files and folders
Themes and class files
Hidden files and folders
_private
Created to store form results and any other files that you want to keep hidden
from site visitors browsing your web site.
filename.cnt
If you add a hit counter to your web site, filename.cnt is is created in the
_private folder, where filename is the name and extension of the page on
which the hit counter is located.
_sharedtemplates
If you create shared templates for a web site, FrontPage creates a hidden folder
named _sharedtemplates in your root web site.
