    It tell you about Front Page...just not how to use it

    I don't know. I was looking for something in the step-by-step area. This isn't it. I was dissapointed in the book as it tells you everything you need to know about Front Page 2002, except really how to use it to make a web page or site. Not very organized. It jumps around too much. I wouldn't recommend it.
