From the Authors' Introduction

there, to put up their own web sites and be a part of the Internet
phenomenon. At the same time, organizations are using the same technology to
install intranets at a geometric rate, and therefore they have the need to
create their own web sites to use internally. The problem has been that the
tools to create both Internet and intranet web sites have been very crude
and anything but easy to use. FrontPage has changed all of that. FrontPage
provides a very easy-to-use, full-featured set of tools for the
full-featured creation, delivery, and maintenance of web sites. And
FrontPage does this in a WYSIWYG environment where you can see what you are
