TIPS AND TRICKS
HTML FORMATTING AND OPTIONAL REFORMATTING
You can tell FrontPage 2002 how your HTML page should be formatted, from how many indents should come before each tag to whether or not to use optional tags. By default, FrontPage preserves the formatting of existing HTML, but applies new HTML formatting to content you add to the existing page. HTML formatting is viewed in the HTML pane. The formatting options you choose will apply to all pages you create in FrontPage. New in FrontPage 2002 is the ability to take a page that has been imported into your Web and reformat the page according to your preferences.
To apply your HTML formatting preferences to a Web page, open it in FrontPage 2002 and do the following:
1. On the Tools menu, click Page Options, and then click the HTML Source tab.
2. Click Reformat using the rules below.
3. Under Formatting, select the options you want.
For example, if you want all tags to appear as lowercase instead of uppercase, select Tag names are lowercase.
4. Under Tags, select the tag and attributes you want.
For example, select Body, and then change indent to 12 spaces.
FrontPage will change the HTML pages you create in FrontPage to use these formatting rules.
