Under the hood: Effortless ways to work with code

Web page and code
Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 is a great tool for visually designing Web pages, but it also provides handy ways to work directly with the HTML code. Take this course and you'll see how.

About this course

This course includes:

  • Three self-paced lessons and three practice sessions for hands-on experience.
  • A short test at the end of each lesson; tests are not scored.
  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Use Split view to see the code and the page design at the same time.
  • Use Code view to see all of the code for the page.
  • Set up display options so the code is easy to read and edit.
  • Use IntelliSense lists to easily write and edit code.
  • Save time by using the Quick Tag Selector and Quick Tag Editor.

One thing is for certain: FrontPage makes it easy to design Web pages without having to know much about the underlying HTML code.

However, there might be times when you need to look "under the hood" of a page and work with the code. For example, you might want to inspect the code to make sure it's compatible with certain browsers. Or you might have inherited a Web site project from someone else, and you'd like to know which tags they used.

If these situations sound familiar, you've come to the right place. This course will show you the many effortless ways to work with code.

To complete this course, you must have basic ability in reading and writing HTML code. In other words, you must know how to type opening and closing tags, be able to type tags and attributes in the proper syntax, and know these basic tags: <img>, <table>, <a>, <ul>, and <li> tags.

To learn HTML basics, read HTML for Beginners on MSDN®.
