Entering content into your pages is very easy to do with FrontPage. You can
simply begin entering text on the page view and it will be formatted according
to the default settings in FrontPage. You may find it more helpful to create
"styles" for your text. You can pick different fonts, sizes, and
colors for the titles, headings, body text, etc. to create a style for these
items that can be applied at any time. This makes it much easier to format
the type on all of the pages in your site rather than having to pick all of
the attributes every time that you need to use the same style of type again.
If you enter text directly on to the page view, keep in mind that text will
not look the same on all browsers or monitors. Certain fonts and colors may
not be shared by different Web browsers or operating systems, so it is important
to use fonts and safe colors that will look the same on the majority of systems.
In this way, more people will be able to view your site in the way you had
You may also discover that if you are viewing your page on a browser on a
14" screen and then view the page using the same browser on a 17"
screen, that the content will spread out to fit the larger screen. Five lines
of text on a 14" screen may turn into three lines on the larger screen.
This may throw off the way in which you intended the page to be organized.
The way to solve this is with the use of tables to create a defined area in
which to place text and graphics. Using tables will help ensure that the elements
on your page will be laid out on every screen in the same way. The only difference
is that on larger screens, there will be more blank screen space on the left
and right sides of your content.
