MS Frontpage

By: Clare Lawrence 15th August 2004

Thinking of designing your own website?, MS Frontpage is a good starting point. It is widely available, well supported and reasonably priced.

Why MS Frontpage?

If you’re familiar with the other members of the Microsoft family such as Excel, Word or Powerpoint then you’ll find Frontpage easy to pick up.

A concept that most beginners find hard to get used to is that of client and server, in which the product only fully functions once published to a web server.

Frontpage copes well here, its preview function showing how the pages will look, once published.

Frontpage 2003 has improved its publishing utility and now incorporates many templates and wizards. So building a feedback form or question capture screen is very straightforward.

If you’re building a personal website or a corporate presence site, then frontage is great. If your planning a professional site or comprehensive e-commerce platform then a product such as Mcromedia Dream weaver maybe more suitable.
