    FRONT PAGE BAD! The best way to create a web page is use a test editor like
    Note Pad. Front page is just a hassle and a pain in the @ss!

    To each their own style and tools...the results are in the pudding (WebPages).
    Many people do not want to "hand code" HTML pages. This is highly inefficient
    for most people who want to post and share information (this is the primary
    purpose for them to build webs to begin with)and do not share a desire to
    craft exceptional code.

    Please note in the HTML code below that fonts set to less than 8 points all
    retain the <FONT SIZE=1> and the IE Explorer browser will display these as
    8 pt fonts. You might also see that fonts smaller than 8 pt become dificult
    to read and should be avioided for on-line text display (in my opinion).


    <HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
    <META NAME="Generator" CONTENT="Microsoft Word 97">
    <TITLE>Test Font sizes from MS Word Saved as HTML</TITLE>
    </HEAD>
    <BODY>

    <FONT SIZE=2><P>Test Font sizes from MS Word Saved as HTML</P>

    </FONT> <FONT SIZE=1><P>A</FONT> <FONT SIZE=2> 5 pt </P>
    </FONT> <FONT SIZE=1><P>A</FONT> <FONT SIZE=2> 6 pt</P>
    </FONT> <FONT SIZE=1><P>A</FONT> <FONT SIZE=2> 8 pt</P>
    </FONT> <P> A <FONT SIZE=2> 12 pt</P>
    </FONT> <FONT SIZE=4> <P>A</FONT> <FONT SIZE=2> 14 pt</P></FONT></BODY>

    I agree with paul from nono.com that Front Page isnt the greatest thing in
    the world... however a large percentage of sites on the www today are developed
    with it, or used at some point in it. (point proven when i viewed the line
    code for nono.com which has front page elements to it) Have fun with the
    web, and if you see something you like, make it your own! ... that's the
    great thing, if you can see it, then you can copy it/ edit it/ and call it
    your own.

    Re: Front Page 98<---BAD!


    Front Page is an excellent program for people who aren't HTML experts. However
    it does have some quirks and you should have at least a basic knowledge of
    HTML. I agree, however that a font size smaller than 8 pt. is too small to
    use in a web page. I personally never use anything smaller than 12 pt. Of
    course I just want to make sure that visually challenged people can read
    it too! Have fun with Front Page. I recently upgraded to FP 2000 and I love
    it.

    Take care.

    Chris I am glad that you agree with me and I do know a large percent of the
    www uses Front page, but those sites are usually designed by people that
    don't HTML and want a "quick" page up and running. nono.com is not my real
    e-mail. I choose not publish my e-mail and made it up. Funny that there
    is a site called www.nono.com and it used Front page. I still hold to my
    feelings to FRONT PAGE BAD!, but I know people use it. TRUE HTML developers
    don't. Thanks for reading my response.
