Bobbye that won't work. If you do it that way, it will still have ALL of
Word's coding inside & you won't know until you look at the page in html view.
Copy your Word doc and open a text editor like Windows Notepad. Then hit
Control A, Control C on the Notepad text... and copy it from notepad to
Frontpage. You can do this with ANY Word files to get them into Frontpage but not
carry over the extra coding.
By the way, I did the copy-straight-from-Word on a couple pages when I was
new and had to clean up the code by hand ---- NEVER will I make the same mistake
again, it is SUCH a hassle. PLUS, if you check pages at the w3.org
validator, Word docs do not validate... example, it insets code around everything Word
THINKS is a street or city, even if the words have nothing to do with either.
Then the validator says that code is WRONG. Yup, big hassle. Just type
directly in Frontpage. Or copy existing text from Word to Notepad to Frontpage.
