Use Of Microsoft FrontPage In Professional Web Design

Nov 5, 2007
Microsoft frontpage is one of the most recent versions of the popular all in one professional web design tool kit. Till recent times setting up a web site required not only internet connection, but some pretty specialized knowledge about how the web sites are built and maintained including the ability to create pages of the web site using a language called hyper text markup language. Not only everyone who wanted a web site had the ability, time or desires to acquire that knowledge. This is where frontpage comes in as a solution for all those who wanted to create a web site without a prior knowledge of Hyper Text Markup Language.

Frontpage is actually a member of the Microsoft Office family of products and shares many of the features of Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel such as the Microsoft Clipart Gallery, global spell checking and thesaurus and easy table editing which are helpful in professional web design. It also manages hyperlinks created in Microsoft Office documents. It is an integrated site development environment which includes a web creation and maintenance package called Front Page Explorer; a FrontPage Editor which is what you see is what you get web page editor and a fully functioning Personal Web Server that turns a personal computer into a web host machine. With FrontPage one can create a complete Web Site on the personal computer to the World Wide Web and internet. It is not a pre requisite to know Hyper Text Markup Language as FrontPage Editor Works like a word processor. Page can even be groomed in whatever required format.

The software also takes care of generating the Hyper Text Markup Language code together and provides the user with the ability to put together Web Pages that include elements which formerly demanded knowledge of programming. Microsoft Front Page contains three major components namely FrontPage Explorer, FrontPage Editor and Microsoft Personal Web Server that can be used for professional web design. The Microsoft Front Page Explorer is a tool for creating, organizing, administering and publishing Front Page webs. Using the Front Page Explorer one can create the structure or layout of the web site from scratch as it gives wizards and templates to take from no site at all to a site. It also arranges files and folders, imports and export pages and files, tests and repairs hyperlinks, administers, access privileges and launches the Front Page Editor to design and edit the contents of the web pages. Front Page can also be used to publish completed Front Page webs on the computer or on the organization's intranet or on the World Wide Web. In short a Front page is a collection of HTML pages, images, documents and other files and folders that make up a web site in professional web design.
