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
