NOTE: I receive my MS FP
Bulletin one month late, now I have found
http://microsoftfrontpage.com/ site, I
will be able to post the bulletins sooner.
However please note the bulletins one
receives via subscription at MS are not the
same format as the site bulletins and that
the msfp site also contains other
information. There is one other important
point to note and that is the archives at
microsoftfrontpage.com do not as far as back
as these, so if you want to look back this
is the place to do it! You can also obtain
the bulletins as
FREE E-books with your membership

EDITING ASP FILES WITH MICROSOFT FRONTPAGE 2000
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.
POSITION AND LAYER GRAPHICS AND TEXT--DOWN TO THE PIXEL--WITH FRONTPAGE 2000
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:
CONTROL WEB PAGE DEFAULT SETTINGS
As users of Microsoft Word are probably aware, every time you create a new
document, Word bases that document on a template called Normal.dot. This
template includes such information as the default font Word uses and the
standard margins for pages. What you may not be aware of, however, is that
Microsoft FrontPage uses a similar template whenever you create a new HTML
document. By modifying this template, you can control many of the default
settings on your HTML pages. In this article, you can see where FrontPage stores
its template and how you can edit it:
HOW MUCH DOES ECOMMERCE COST?
If your company is not on the Internet then you're going to go out of business .

Sunday papers. But what is eCommerce and how much does it cost? Find out more
from the FrontPage user group chairman Rod Gordon, of Gordon Associates.
Rod reviews the time and costs of some of the top ecommerce sites around.

TIPS AND TRICKS
USEFUL SHORTCUT KEYS IN FRONTPAGE 2000
Do you find that using the keyboard is sometimes quicker than using your mouse?
Shortcut keys can help you bypass menus and carry out commands directly. You can
use shortcut keys in many ways with FrontPage, from accessing commands and
toolbar buttons to outlining and editing information. Shortcut keys are
sometimes listed next to the command name on menus. For more details, please go
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:
AVOID LARGE GAPS BETWEEN PARAGRAPHS
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.
