To my daughters Zosia and Lucy, who make me move
faster and work smarter every day.

I ve used, abused, and written about every version of FrontPage. Nevertheless, writing Faster Smarter Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 was quite an experience. Faster Smarter is a fairly new series from Microsoft Press that aims to help readers (like you) learn products and technologies quickly. As you ll see, this series is a bit different from other similar ones on the market. You ll find things like Aha! (which provide tips and tricks for efficiency) and Lingo (which define terms) in addition to traditional Notes and Cautions. You ll find 10-Second Summaries that introduce the chapters and Fast Wrap-Ups that conclude chapters. And in between, you ll find a focus on accomplishing tasks with minimal fuss.
No man is an island, and this book couldn t have been written without the help of some very special people. Kristen Weatherby and Carmen Corral-Reid helped me stay on track and get the tools I needed to write this book. Carmen headed up the editorial process for nSight, Inc. As the project manager, she wore many hats, assisted in many ways, and was instrumental in helping me complete the text. I would also like to thank Alex Blanton.Not only did Alex help keep the project on track and resolve issues, but he also helpedcoordinate communications with the FrontPage team. Being able to work closely with the FrontPage team in the early stages of this project was both very important and helpful. Thank you!
Unfortunately for the writer (but fortunately for readers), writing is only one part of the publishing process. Next came editing and author review. Chris Russo was the technical editor for the book. Thank you Chris for checking the text carefully !
Hopefully, I haven t forgotten anyone but if I have, it was an oversight. Honest.;-)
Preparing this book proved to be a remarkably smooth process due to the participation of a number of dedicated professionals. Neil Salkind, Stacey Barone, Jackie Coder, and David and Sherry Rogelberg of Studio B never fail to brighten my day with an exciting new project or good news on the success of our former collaborations. Laura Sackerman and Kristen Weatherby of Microsoft Press and Carmen Corral-Reid of nSight, Inc. made sure the text was presented clearly, and technical editor Chris Russo made sure it was accurate. Alex Blanton at Microsoft got the project going and was helpful all the way through. Finally, thanks to my coauthor William R. Stanek for his guidance and support.
