Archived from groups: microsoft>public>publisher>webdesign (more info?)

I have used Publisher for a few years to create webpages. I have never used
FrontPage before. Is FrontPage quite different from Publisher...in other
words, is there going to be a big "learning curve" if I switch to FrontPage?
The reason I ask is that I don't want to go out and spend a lot of money on
FrontPage if it's going to take me a long time to learn it. I'm very familiar
with Publisher, Word, Access and PowerPoint....it seems like with those
programs if you know one of them, the others are pretty easy to figure
out...they are fairly similar to one another when it comes to all of the
functions, formatting, etc. Does FrontPage fall into the same category?

There are some very good training courses for FrontPage. Take a look and see if the
learning curve is something you want to deal with.

My personal opinion is that once you've managed to get around in Word,
getting around in FrontPage isn't a big deal. HOWEVER (you knew that was
coming, right?), beyond the basics of cut, copy, and paste, there's so much
to learn. But it's worth it if you're going to be creating websites.
Warning: The process is different from Publisher and your files can't be
"converted".

Does anyone have any recommendations as to which version of FrontPage is the
best?

I'm a believer in latest/greatest but others may have differing opinions. (I
hate starting out with an older version.)

For noobies FP2003 is the best (IMO) as it has the Split view which enables
you to see the html as you are working in Design...GREAT for learning.
