Using Front Page '98 Editor for making web pages

The easiest way to use the editor it to simply 'call it' from Internet Explorer by moving the pointer to EDIT then selecting PAGE.
If the computer you are using has got Front Page Installed or available the Internet Explorer should select it as the editing tool.

The Front Page Editor will not only open but it will also open a page for immediate editing if you use this method. If you do not wish to edit the page it opens you may close it using the "X" box and you will be faced with the editor proper.

The Front Page Editor will look similar to below showing the main folders on the left and the pages with the folders onj the right.
Please not all web pages end with the extension ".htm" and most pictures will use ".jpg" or ".gif".

To edit one of the pages in the "contents" list simply double click on the page icon next to the name. 
This will open the page in the editing mode and allow you to modify the text or add pictures to the work.
The editing tool bar above is similar to the tool bar that will be available . The yellow picture allows you to set a picture in the page. The icon next right allows links to be made while all the other icons are similar to those found on a standard Word Processor.
