To truly allow you to learn FrontPage 2003 faster and smarter, we had to assume that you already know Internet basics and have basic Web skills. With this in mind, the book doesn t discuss the history of the Internet, the evolution of Web design, or markup language fundamentals. The book doesn t discuss scripting, Java, XML, or other Web technologies either, except with regard to how those technologies are used with FrontPage 2003 to create dynamic, interactive Web sites. We do, however, cover themes, style sheets, tables, layers , frames , forms, database-driven sites, collaboration, and much more.
We also assume that you know a bit about HTML and XML. If you want to learn HTML/XML basics, there are many terrific resources, including Laura Lemay s Teach Yourself Web Publishing with HTML and XHTML , and William Stanek s XML Pocket Consultant .
