Ehhh!... A web publishing app made by MS. Go out and buy Adobe GoLive ... that will solve your problem

I'd love to, except that The University where I teach will only support FP. :-(

I second that!

What do you mean 'only support' Front Page. Is this for a class? In the web dev industry, Front Page is widley considered to be a POS package. If you have a school who is telling you that this is how web pages are made...they are wrong.

Look, if they want you to use FP, then they not going to give a damn about your code (FP write HTML like pig latin). If your teaching HTML/web development, you should be doing it right.

Download a free triall version of Dreamweaver (or any REAL wysiwyg editor) and goto town. When you are done, go back and put this in the <head> portion of your code: <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 3.0">

Servers have to go out of their way to support FP, not vice versa. Forget about them, they probably have their pockets lined by Billy anyways. The college I went too & teach at used to support Macs, them M$ gave a bunch of money, and everything began to go PeeCee. These people are dictating education by finances.

HTML is the standerd for the web, no matter what platform you use.
