Lesson 1: Building a New Web Site
The World Wide Web is a great way for people to communicate with each other. While you have conversations with other people over Internet e-mail and in Internet newsgroups, you can also publish your own personal Web sitea collection of one or more pages on which you can share all sorts of information.
This tutorial will introduce you to Web page creation and Web site management, two aspects that will show you how easy and fun it is to build and maintain a Web site with Microsoft FrontPage 2000.
In this first lesson, you'll create a "Millennium Celebration Web" that provides information about the Year 2000. Its pages will contain travel destinations for millennium celebrations, an online photo album, and a list of links to other sites.
We've prepared a folder of various files for you to practice with while you create this Web site. When you have completed the lessons, you will have a good understanding of FrontPage and its features.
In this lesson, you will learn how to:
- Start Microsoft FrontPage.
- Create and edit Web pages.
- Work with text and hyperlinks.
- Insert pictures and files.
- Format lists.
- Position objects.
- Add a feedback form.
- Design a photo gallery.
- Create a Web site structure.
- Save your work.
If you haven't already installed FrontPage, you'll need to do so before you begin the tutorial.
To start Microsoft FrontPage
- On the Windows taskbar, click the Start button, point to Programs, and then click Microsoft FrontPage.
