You can use Javascript to reformat the returned strings. Instead of
passing them to the place on the page where you want them, pass them to a
Javascript function that reformats the strings. Then place a reference to
the Javascript function where you want the reformatted strings to appear.

Hope this helps.

1. Database: Next Step - Formatting Results of database query

Okay, so now I've learned how to get a database to work with Front Page.  My
next step is to learn how to format the results of a query into an
attractive dynamically created webpage.  What I want to do is have a web
page pop up when a user clicks on a picture or icon.  I don't necessarily
want it to look like a boring database table, even though I realize content
is king.  Any resources dealing with how this can be accomplished?  Thanks
for putting up with me.
