Microsoft FrontPage 97 has a unique combination of features for building and installing a small- to medium-sized Web/Internet site that can easily run to 400-500 pages. The program is centered around two primary applications, Explorer and Editor, which provide Web site management and Web editing capabilities. In addition, FrontPage 97 includes a Bonus Pack which includes FrontPage Editor, FrontPage Explorer, Microsoft Personal Web Server, Image Composer, Internet Explorer and Web Publishing Wizard. Living up to Microsoft's claims, it really is everything you need to create and test a Web site.
Ability to Display, Verify, and Correct Office 97 Hyperlinks
Through the FrontPage Server Extensions, FrontPage Explorer can manage hyperlinks to and from Office 97 documents.
You can directly enter script in FrontPage Editor. The script will run when the file is posted on a Web server and browsed with a browser that supports the scripting language.

Support for Java Applets
Support for Netscape Plug-ins
Netscape plug-ins can be inserted into FrontPage Editor and you can define their size and layout.
Cross-Web Spelling Checker
FrontPage uses the same spelling checker engine as Office (instead of a duplicate copy of it as in FrontPage 1.1). FrontPage 97 also uses the same custom dictionary as Office 97 (or the first dictionary if there are multiple dictionaries).
FrontPage 97 uses the same converters as Microsoft Office 97. FrontPage 97 can convert any of the following file formats to HTML: Microsoft Excel Worksheet (.xls, .xlw)
WordPerfect 6.x (.wps, .doc)

You can directly preview your page in any installed browser at any of four screen resolutions.
Cross-Web Find and Replace

Support for the Creation of Sub Folders within the Web Content Area
The folder view in FrontPage Explorer works the way the Windows 95 or NT 4.0 Explorer does. It allows you to organize your files. It also allows you to create subfolders within subfolders.
FrontPage Explorer and Editor support drag-and-drop functionality. You can drag files into FrontPage Explorer for auto-import. You can drag files from one location in the Web to a subfolder to quickly rearrange the files in the Web and FrontPage Explorer will automatically correct all the hyperlinks to and from the document. You can also drag images, text documents, Microsoft Excel ranges, and hyperlinks into FrontPage Editor to insert new elements. You can also drag existing elements from one part of a page to another or from page to page within FrontPage Editor.
