Other Advantages for Using FrontPage
* Server side includes are easy with FrontPage. Before we gon on, let me explaon what "server side includes" are.
Server side includes (SSI's) generate parts of Web pages dynamically on "server side". The allow you to add customization features to your Web pages, such as e-mail form. Unlike other forms of dynamic content, or content that's created on fly, server side includes have a normal URL that's easy for users to remember and doesn't create problems for engines.
In other works, SSI's embed special commands into an HTML document that tells server to perform specific actions when a user requests page. The server then creates Web page on fly by merging files or inserting requested information.
How might you use SSI's on your Web page? Let's say you want ot add a form to your Web site for your users to complete to sign up for your newsletter. You could create form using SSI's.

Dave Barry, who recently created two major sections of Dell Web site using FrontPage, manages 40 to 50 Web sites at SmartCertify, and he easily moves back and forth between those sites using FTP. With that many sites, there is a lot of duplicity, and he can effortlessly share objects with FP or edit multiple Web sites. With FrontPage, ou can cut and paste between sites, use shared borders, and easily drag and drop files, thus saving a lot of time versus handling each site separately.

Dave created a video on how to copy and paste, how to use Cascading Style Sheets, and how to use shared borders with Front Page:
