    afaik, Office 2003 doesnt come bundled with frontpage, u hv to purchase it separately ;)
    Once I had similar problem, I was using Office 2003 and also needed frontpage, so I used my Office XP CD and did a custom install and only selected "Frontpage" to install it :D

    Front Page isnt the thing that MS is working on any more... they are shifting to a new type of platform...

    Microsoft Web Expression...

    I am totally disagree with you:eek: . I think frontpage is the best one for amatuer web designer. we should not call it worst. I am also using Macromedia dreamweaver MX 2004. There are many things whichdreamweaver can't do but forntpage can do!

    I think you are agree with me.:rolleyes:

    Dreamweaver and Frontpage is very hot combination.:p

    frontpage and dreamweaver is my combo i hv never done any site designing course .... frontpage has a very simple user interface and can do the basic things pretty easily though at times it is very frustrating when u hav adjust somethign or the other but frontpage for n00bs very good .... but for ppl who are into the business of website designing and hosting should not be using such an amatuer program so if they call it the worst i can live with it

    Have you guys ever studied the code that Frontpage generates for your web-pages? As is the case with almost all Micro$oft products, front-end is awesome, back-end aweful!!

    I am completely, totally, entirely AGAINST frontpage! It just looks nice, but the code that it generates is just horrible. I am maintaining a site made by someone else. It has over 100 pages and he had used plain HTML and frontpage to make it. :shock: I know what I have to go thru to maintain it.

    Shall I take this as a compliment? :)) Just kidding.

    See, someone like me who prefers to write every bit of code in a text-editor will always feel that WYSISYG editors generate trash. But Frontpage generates the most trash! The site that it makes will look perfect in IE. But try it out in some other browser. I have seen many pages going complete haywire in other browsers. Earlier it was fine because IE was the undisputed king of browsers. But now, it is slowly losing market share!

    Have a look here for browser market shares :)

    @John cena : Optimization is one of the practises in software engineering!

    A bloated piece of software with code containing irrelevant entries is never favoured. Using these editors, u may say there is a trade off b/w Ease of coding and optimization for developers.

    U make an html page with FP. Its size is like 30-35 KB. Now try to make the same design urself without the help of these editors. It may be like 20-25 KB. Now suppose u make a whole site with the help of such editors containing 10000 such pages. Can u guess how much extra code will be there and how much space is being wasted??
    Also if some one surfs ur website containing these bloated pages, he will be wasting his bandwidth on "trash" code that is being downloaded!! So u can't escape the "trash" code that is automatically generated using these editors, though u can edit it and remove it!!

    I only use dreamweaver and that too when I need to edit the designing part or the color codes!! The code gets generated here too, but its easier for me to identify what code was mine and what has been generated, and edit it appropriately!!
