Microsoft FrontPage 2002


The Bottom Line

If you already know and love Microsoft FrontPage, you will love this upgrade, but beginners might want to think about another WYSIWYG editor.

  • Familiar interface - like MS Word
  • Great team management features
  • Photo gallery, drawing tools, automatic content


  • Installs more than just FrontPage automatically
  • HTML written in the WYSIWYG editor can be poor
  • Only 50 uses without "activation"


  • The familiar interface allows anyone who has used Word to create a Web page in minutes.
  • The new Photo Gallery feature is a fun tool to create montage Web sites of your images easily.
  • Key features like e-commerce and SharePoint Team Services make it more useful to small businesses.

Guide Review - Microsoft FrontPage 2002

FrontPage 2002 offers a lot of great features for the intermediate Web Developer, especially for those already familiar with FrontPage. New features like the Photo Gallery and the e-commerce tools allow you to create more dynamic and interesting Web pages faster than ever. Beginners might be attracted to FrontPage 2002, and in fact, in many ways it is a powerful editor for beginners. But unless you are willing to use only the tools that Microsoft provides, it is not a good tool for beginners, especially if you want to learn standards and other development skills like JavaScript and XML.
