>>Programs like FrontPage are a quick & relatively easy way to create Web
pages without having to program or even know HTML. But FrontPage has
limitations -- like it only runs on FrontPage Server, which is not
compatible with all servers; thus your site will not be accessible to
NO! Sites created with FrontPage are accessible to anyone. The problem
is that in order to implement FrontPage's "WebBots" (pre-packaged,
automated client/server CGI interaction programs that can give your site
the power to dynamically process information like forms, databases and
discussion groups), your site must be hosted on a server that has the
FrontPage Server Extensions installed. These are available for free but
some ISPs will not install them due to security concerns (at least
that's the reason my ISP told me).
