Editorial Review

Microsoft's FrontPage 2003 combines a slick and easy-to-use page designer with tools and wizards for creating, managing and uploading websites. It is part of the Office family and the look and feel will be familiar to those who have worked with Microsoft Word. You can create a website with a blank page, or use pre-designed templates and themes for common page designs or entire websites. FrontPage 2003 also has wizards for interactive and dynamic features including live links to databases, discussion forums, search forms, hit counters and navigation bars. Some features require a Windows web server, while others depend on FrontPage web server extensions, so it is important to check what is available from your particular Internet service provider before depending on a FrontPage feature. Non-Microsoft server technologies such as PHP or Java Server Pages are not supported by FrontPage tools, so using these is a matter of hand-coding or else selecting an alternative editor such as Macromedia's Dreamweaver.

FrontPage 2003 is a substantial improvement on earlier versions. The editor is well behaved, preserving hand-coded script or HTML code and a new split-view makes it easy to work with both the visual design and the underlying text. Strong new features include table-based layout tools, the ability to create a page design by tracing an image, nested or overlapping layers, better use of Cascading Stylesheets and templates that let you lock some content while making other parts of the page editable by other team members. Coding is enhanced by a quick tag editor and Intellisense statement completion. Flash movies are fully supported and there are tools for the easy display of XML data. There is also special integration with SharePoint services running on Windows 2003 Server, making FrontPage 2003 the natural choice for creating SharePoint intranets. FrontPage 2003 is a feature-rich product which enables good results without requiring knowledge of HTML, while also providing strong support for those who prefer to work with the underlying code. --Tim Anderson
