The following are answers to common questions in the Microsoft FrontPage Client Newsgroup:

Here's the game with the ActiveX Control Pad (I'll use XCP for short) and FrontPage.

1. Configure the FrontPage Explorer to use the "XCP" as an editor. It won't allow a second htm extension so use something like htmx.

2. When you need to edit a file with "XCP" instead of FrontPage's editor, right-click the file in Explorer and select Open With ... Select the ActiveX Control Pad.

3. Make your edits and save the file. Just use the File Save and let it put the file where it wants to (it will go to a temp directory).

4. Here's the big difference: Switch back to FrontPage Explorer and select File Import. Select your modified file(s) and import them. If you don't you won't see your changes (there may be a later message about files still in the import list when you exit).

ActiveX Control Pad and FrontPage work together quite well. FrontPage is a little rough around the edges and I've seen some flaws and nuisances but not enough to send me away. Remember this is a "point one" clean up of a
product from a third party. I'm looking forward to 2.0.
