Raise the Bar
It's easy to customize horizontal rules into something more than a two-point bar. Right-click on the line and choose Properties, then change the properties of your rule.
Build your own corporate-standard Web templates by choosing File/Save
As, specifying a URL and deleting the HTM extension. Click on
the As Template button and enter a description. Now, whenever
you create a new page, the new template will appear as an option.
Why Re-Create the Wheel?
Incorporate ideas from other sites into your own Web pages. In
FrontPage Editor, select File/Open Location. Type in the URL of
the page you admire. When the page comes up, choose Save and the
page, with all included graphics, will be saved for you.
Maintain a High Degree of Integrity
To check and correct hyperlinks, open the Tools menu and choose
Follow Link, or click on the link while holding down the Ctrl
key. This even works for image maps.
Split the screen between FrontPage Explorer and the Outline, Link
or Summary views, then select a document in the view. Drag this
document onto the desired location in FrontPage Editor and it
will automatically become a hyperlink.
You can add extra control to formatting using borderless tables.
Right-click on any table, choose Properties and set the Border
Size parameter to 0.
Using Nonstandard HTML
Want to use HTML code that's normally unrecognized by FrontPage?
Use the Extended option. In FrontPage Editor, right-click on the
screen element, choose Properties and click on Extended. Then
type in the attributes you wish for the element.
Add Code-Level Editor
To add a code-level editor, go to FrontPage Explorer and choose
Tools/Configure Editors. Enter the location of your code editor.
When you load pages into FrontPage Explorer, you can right-click
on the page and open it with your editor.
