Microsoft FrontPage is one of the most popular tools for creating Web pages and sites. It is particularly appealing to beginning and intermediate-level users who don't necessarily want to have to be experts in HTML or JavaScript in order to create a professional-looking Web site. Most users want to quickly learn only the most common, most important tasks involved in creating simple, well-designed Web sites. Written by the popular author, Rogers Cadenhead, Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft FrontPage in 24 Hours is designed precisely for this beginning-level user - somebody who doesn't want to become a FrontPage expert but just wants to get a Web site up as quickly and as smoothly as possible. The book covers the FrontPage features and techniques that are likely to be used on a beginner's Web page, and it is organized in a logical step-by-step order that reflects the natural progression a new Web page author will follow in developing a Web site with FrontPage.
