How Can Long Distance Be So Low?

by Greg Hicks

Long distance... why is it that you hear this phrase bandied about so often today? On television,

onrepparttar radio, inrepparttar 125540 newspaper. There was a time not too long ago when phone service was only

thought of as that... phone service. We did not think about a local phone company AND a long

distance carrier. We got it all on one bill from one provider.

Now we have a choice.

"Oh yes", you say, "we can choose MCI, AT&T, or Sprint". Yes, we have these companies to

provide quality, reliable long distance service for our homes or businesses. And they have been

there for us for many years, with an ongoing rivalry between themselves, but we generally chose

and stayed withrepparttar 125541 carrier that we've always used, or our parents or friends have always used

paying whatever we got charged, becauserepparttar 125542 "Big Three" rates were generallyrepparttar 125543 same or close.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this either, I mean just because a choice is available,

isn'trepparttar 125544 choice to not change there as well?

Now, think of long distance service as a product. It is after all, correct? And as in any other

industry, buying product in bulk, enablesrepparttar 125545 buyer to get a lower purchase price. You and I

cannot buy phone service in bulk, but certain businesses can, and it is these businesses that have

risen up to becomerepparttar 125546 new "big boys" onrepparttar 125547 block. They have done this by purchasing long

distance usage onrepparttar 125548 existing lines and switches at volume discounts, so as to offer lower rates

Ever since I've been doing SEO work, I've always griped and complained about FrontPage and allrepparttar extraneous code it puts inrepparttar 125538 section ofrepparttar 125539 page, etc.

Then recently, I hadrepparttar 125540 opportunity to visit with a group of advanced search engine optimizers, and I was shocked to fine that many of them use FrontPage and love it.

Front Page?

The first thing I learned is that there are ways to keep outrepparttar 125541 extraneous code. With FrontPage, you can removerepparttar 125542 code, but it keeps coming back, again and again. But, there's a way to get rid of it forever.

How to Get Rid of Extraneous Code and Headers

Dave Barry, Webmaster of SmartCertify Direct [], explains how:

FrontPage 97 or 98 users:

Click on Start, then Find, then Files or Foldert. Search your hard drive [generally your C drive] for a file named frontpg.ini. Click onrepparttar 125543 file.

When it opens, look for a line that says, "Version 3.0".

Add this line under Version 3.0:


The next time you use FrontPage, removerepparttar 125544 extraneous code and headers, and they won't come back.

FrontPage 2000, 2002, or XP users:

Look atrepparttar 125545 menu bar atrepparttar 125546 top ofrepparttar 125547 Open Web. Click on Tools, then Page Options.

You'll see an option box. Under HTML Source, atrepparttar 125548 top of hte page under General, you'll have this choice:

When saving file(s):

Preserve existing HTML or Reformat usingrepparttar 125549 rules below

If you choose Preserve existing HTML, and if you delete any extraneous code and headers, you won't seerepparttar 125550 code or headers on your pages again.

To disablerepparttar 125552 HTML changing of FrontPage 2000, a registry entry is also needed. This registry file ( will do it automatically. Just openrepparttar 125553 file with Notepad to verify its authenticity before using it.

Or, if you want to editrepparttar 125555 registry manually, here isrepparttar 125556 code:
