Microsoft updates FrontPage beta

It's expected to be released as part of the next version of the Office suite in mid-2001. It provides new tools for Web site creation, control, and management, according to the software giant.

With FrontPage 10, you can create and customise the Photo Gallery feature to display photos and images, Microsoft says. You can select different customisable layouts, add captions, reorder and edit images, and switch layouts. Using another feature, the automatic Web content application, you can also insert content and update a Web site without having to edit it.

Impromptu Management Tools

The software also contains updated site management features to track how visitors use a Web site, which pages get the most hits, and how they were referred to it. You can insert a top-10 list of the most popular pages on the Web site, and view the results according to different criteria. Those criteria include pages visited most often, referring domains, referring URLs, search strings, and visitors. The list is automatically refreshed whenever someone visits the page.

Some other new features enable you to collaborate and create Web sites to store, find, and share information, documents, and Web pages, according to Microsoft. With the SharePoint team-collaboration application, you and colleagues also can create intranet pages on the fly, editing content straight from a browser. You can control the appearance and functioning of your HTML code by reformatting HTML pages, specifying colour-coding tags, and indenting tags.

A new paste feature lets you choose among formatting from the source page, in the existing Web page, or as text, when you paste content from other applications.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
