Review:

FrontPage 2000: The Complete Reference contains screen shots and interface labels that explain, completely, the tools Web developers have available to them when using FrontPage 2000. Such elements are important parts of any software-documentation effort. But the authors of this book go beyond mere descriptions, explaining how to use the tools to achieve the kinds of effects you want on your Web sites. They're like scientists describing what they see, but also like engineers setting out to accomplish practical tasks.

Many FrontPage 2000 books mistakenly assume that the latest version of Microsoft's editor for Web sites is a lot like its predecessors: big, slow, and not well-suited to serious Web publishing efforts. That's not the case and the authors know this, explaining with great clarity how to use all of FrontPage 2000's features.

The book includes a lot of procedures, so if you're looking to find out how to enable Active Server Pages (ASP) or draw a table, you'll have no trouble finding specific steps to follow. Coverage of ASP, databases, and other aspects of dynamic site creation is particularly strong here. Sticking to their follow-this-procedure method, the authors explain how to collect data from a Web form and store it in a database, as well as demonstrating the construction of pages from database contents on the fly--a useful technique for such applications as catalogs and directories. This is an excellent resource for FrontPage 2000 users. --David Wall
