Now we need to insert some text.

Sounds painful.


Thanks to FrontPage, it isn't. We can create a title and a little paragraph to explain what our web page is about.

Adding and formatting text

    1. Insert the cursor into the sample text area of FrontPage Editor.

    2. Press the Enter key and type in a new sentence.

Okay, it's time to change our background color. Hey, Pixel, make sure our background color is different than our text color. Otherwise, our text is going to be difficult to read.

Duh... everybody knows that, Blip.


You'd be suprised. The World Wide Web has incredible web pages, but it also has some really lame ones. With careful planning and the help of FrontPage, ours is going to be stellar.
