Detailed Description:

Microsoft® FrontPage version 2002


Now it's easy to add sophisticated technology to your Web site without having to program. Whether you want to better understand your visitors through usage analysis reports, or get the lowdown on your site's performance with enhanced reports, Microsoft FrontPage 2002 has the tools to help your business.


* Microsoft FrontPage version 2002 provides the best value in its category. It has integrated features for Web site creation, Web site management, instant team Web sites with the SharePoint Team Services team Web solution, e-commerce, and graphics editing built right in.
* FrontPage is easy to get started with. Built-in templates and wizards allow you to create a web site in only a matter of minutes, and then customize it to make it your own with your own graphics, Photo Gallery, backgrounds, image maps, Themes, fonts, and formatting.
* FrontPage grows with you as you learn more and more about web site creation and management. FrontPage allows you to create Web pages in a familiar what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) environment, use Reveal Codes to see what HTML tags are produced while they are still in WYSIWYG mode, and even hand-code in the Notepad-like HTML View. You can even use its e-commerce functionality, forms and database support, and usage analysis features when you are ready for them.
* You can get started quickly with FrontPage because it looks and works like Microsoft Office. As part of the Microsoft Office family of products, it shares similar toolbars, menus, Task Pane, clipboard, and familiar features such as the Customizable Themes and background spell checking.
* FrontPage is broadly available and broadly used. Microsoft FrontPage is so popular that you can easily find a wide range of Web sites, books, training classes, Web professionals and users groups to help you learn and use FrontPage. You can also choose from hundreds of Web site hosting companies that support creating and editing Web sites directly against their servers, and select from a variety of third-party add-ins that extend the functionality of FrontPage even further.
* FrontPage helps users at all levels save time. Novices can get productive quickly because FrontPage looks and works like Microsoft Office, and HTML experts can produce code faster using FrontPage menus and buttons.

SharePoint™ Team Services SharePoint Team Services allows you to quickly set up a team web site for intranet or Internet users to store, find, and share information, documents, & web pages. Use FrontPage to customize the site.

Usage Analysis Reports Usage Analysis Reports help you find out what pages are getting the most hits in daily, weekly, or monthly reports, and how visitors find your site. You can save reports in HTML or Excel for later analysis.

Database Interface Wizard Generates the forms and pages you need to display the contents of a database on a page. Allow specific users to edit or delete records through a web page, while allowing everyone who can browse to your site to add new records and view existing ones.

Discussions and Subscriptions Use discussions & subscriptions with SharePoint Team Services to post and reply to comments on pages on any web page on the Internet, and to receive an e-mail notification when discussions have changed or when pages on your site have changed.

Document Libraries Use SharePoint Team Services Document Libraries technology to store documents in one location for everyone, or for specific people to access. You can specify a template for each document library, or users can upload existing documents with their browser.

Discussion Boards Use SharePoint Team Services technology to insert newsgroup-style threaded discussions. You decide who can see the discussions and who can contribute to them.

Dynamic Online Surveys Use SharePoint Team Services technology to insert dynamic online Surveys, complete with easy-to-add radio buttons, dropdown menus, and check boxes. Visitors can respond to surveys from their browsers, and can choose to see results in automatic graphs.

Unicode Support Unicode Support allows authors to create web pages in all of the languages installed on their computer’s Windows operating system. This includes support for bi-directional character set and Unicode.

Standard Features

HTML Editing and Site Management FrontPage gives you the tools to create, control, and grow your site. HTML editing and site management tools are together in one easy-to-use application.

Looks and Works Like Microsoft Office Office 2000 and FrontPage 2000 share common Themes, Task Pane, clipboard, toolbars, menus, shortcuts, and tools like the Format Painter, HTML Help, and background spell checking. Even shares the same installer technology as Office so companies can easily roll out FrontPage with Office XP.

Author in Your Favorite Environment Author in Normal (WYSIWYG) mode, or use Reveal Tags to see your tags while still in Normal view. Or author in HTML view, which provides a text editor-like environment and allows users to insert code by hand or use familiar FrontPage menus and buttons.

HTML, XML, and ASP Source Code Preservation Edit existing HTML and scripts (including ASP) worry-free in FrontPage. Bring HTML created in other tools into FrontPage, and it will not modify the code. Tag and comment order, capitalization, and even white space are preserved.

Built-in Graphics Editing Tools FrontPage includes comprehensive site management reports that help you find and fix potential problems like slow pages, unlinked pages or graphics, or old pages.

Color Tools Choose Web-safe colors to apply to graphics and text, or choose custom colors from a color picker. Create custom Themes using pre-set Web-safe Color Schemes, or select a custom color scheme from the color wheel.

Nested Subwebs Set rights to the Web as a whole and also set specific rights to subgroups so they can be in total control of their sub-sites.

Check-in/Check-out Keep others from editing a page while you're working on it by using Check-in/Check-out.

Personalized HTML Formatting You decide how you want your code indented, what colors you want your tags, when to capitalize, and when to use optional tags. FrontPage automatically applies these preferences to new code.

Target Specific Browsers, Features, and Servers Pre-select which environments to target (browser, server, FrontPage Server Extensions, ASP, DHTML, CSS, script), and FrontPage automatically restricts features that will not work on the targeted systems.

Create Webs Anywhere You don't need to have access to a Web server in order to create Web content. You can create a complete Web site right on your hard drive or network drive, then publish to a server when you're ready.

Built-in FTP Support Improved user interface makes the option of using the Built-in FTP Support for publishing to servers that don’t run FrontPage Server Extensions easier than ever with intuitive visual prompts.

Microsoft Script Editor Web professionals who create ASP or other script code can use the integrated and updated Microsoft Script Editor to debug and test their code.

Extensibility Software developers can build add-ons for FrontPage for a variety of applications, including e-commerce and graphics editing.

Improved Features

Easier Access to the Tools You Need The Task Pane helps you find what you need fast. Page tabs help you switch from page to page without cluttering your desktop. And the new integrated Folder List and Navigation Pane help you change navigational elements while you continue to edit.

Publishing Improvements Right-click on any pages and send them directly to your web server or exclude certain pages from being published. See both the source and the destination web servers and click and drag files between them.

Professional Web Development Support Control exactly how your code looks and works with Apply XML Formatting Rules, Paste Options smart tag, HTML & ASP Source Code Preservation, and optional HTML Source Formatting.

Enhanced Reporting Monitor your site’s performance by quickly finding slow or unlinked files or pages and broken hyperlinks. New with FrontPage version 2002, you can auto filter the reports and save the data to HTML or to Microsoft Excel.

Improved Shared Borders Improved Shared Borders allow you to apply background colors or background images to shared borders, which are like headers and footers and left and right shared areas on your pages.

Inline Frames via HTML 4-based support Enables advanced technology like HTML 4, including Inline Frames, language attributes, and button and fieldsets in forms. With a few clicks and a URL address, Inline Frames allows you to insert content from any web site you choose.

New and Improved Themes FrontPage comes with 67 customizable Themes. Each updated Theme includes coordinated bullets, buttons, backgrounds, banners, horizontal line, and font styles. You can apply Themes to Microsoft Word documents and SharePoint Team Services-based web sites.

CSS Formatting Improvements Optional Hyperlink or CSS Formatting gives you the ability to format hyperlinks and other CSS-formatted text the way you choose. If you don’t want a hyperlink to have an underline, just highlight the hyperlink and click the Underline button.

Web Components FrontPage Web Components make inserting sophisticated technology into your site fast and easy. New are Photo Gallery, Link Bars, Top 10 Lists, List Views from OWS, Save to Database, and Automatic Web Content like headlines, stock ticker, and maps.

Finer-Grained Permissions New Finer-Grained Permissions allow you to grant or deny access to users and groups through a “role-based” security model. New in FrontPage version 2002, there are more roles to give you even more control over who accesses the content on your site.

Easy-to-use Forms Quickly create a form to collect customer information from your site. Send form data to a text file, an e-mail address, or an Access database that’s created automatically. New are form field options including File Upload, Group Box and Advanced Buttons.

Integrated Third Party E-commerce Solutions There are many third party e-commerce applications that integrate into FrontPage to allow people to sell services and merchandise from their Web sites. Many of these applications are being updated and enhanced for FrontPage version 2002.

26 Languages and International Support FrontPage is available in 26 languages, which is 11 more languages than with FrontPage 2000, so that users all over the world can see the FrontPage interface in their language of choice.
