L.2 Extended Learning Module L Introduction Microsoft FrontPage is Web authoring software. Web authoring software helps you de- sign and develop Web sites and pages that you publish on the Web. FrontPage allows people with limited Web page design experience to create, modify, and maintain full- featured, professional-looking Web pages without having to learn how to code all the functions and features from scratch. Using FrontPage, you can create Web pages, complete with formatted text and graphics, tables, buttons, animations, and sound. You can add frames, borders, and hyperlinks to con- nect the pages into a Web site, or connect the pages to other Web sites. In FrontPage, you create Web pages in much the same way as you create documents using word processing soft- ware. For example, Figure L.1 shows how similar FrontPage and Microsoft Word really are. By using the FrontPage menus and toolbar buttons, you enter and format text, pictures, and other page elements in much the same way as you enter and format these items in Word. Part of FrontPage’s power is that it is scalable, meaning its use can expand, or shrink, to t anyone’s needs. This means that if you do have some experience in creating Web pages, you can use FrontPage to accelerate, as well as automate, both the creation and publication process. Hypertext markup language (HTML) is the language you use to create a Web page. HTML allows you to specify the content of your Web site and format the content such as adding bold, underlining, and numbered lists. FrontPage generates the HTML tags in the background, so you need never concern yourself with them. However, if you want to go into the HTML view and make changes, you can do that as well. We covered HTML in Extended Learning Module F (Building a Web Page with HTML), so we won’t deal with that subject again here. As a refresher, you may want to review the material in Extended Learning Module F as you read this module or before beginning this module.
