As you get ready to create your first Web in FrontPage, the program may look as imposing as a line of Chinese mountains in need of a wall. Knowing where to start, and what to do, can be a daunting task when you've never used the software.

Templates enable you to develop a complete Web in a few minutes, then spend your efforts customizing that Web rather than creating it from scratch.
