If you're chomping at the bit to get results with FrontPage 2002, get Teach Yourself Visually FrontPage 2002.
The folks at Maran Graphics have learned how to squeeze virtually every extraneous word out of their computer books, and this one's no exception. It's simple, friendly, colorful, and tells you only what you need to know: how to perform nearly 150 tasks, step-by-step. Every task's illustrated with several full-color screen captures showing you where to click and what'll happen.
All the absolute basics are here: editing and formatting text, inserting graphics, creating hyperlinks. But the Marans don't stop there. You'll find a full chapter on working with your site's navigational structure, including techniques for reorganizing your site, and adding shared borders that standardize your navigation across all your site's pages at once.
The Forms chapter shows how to create confirmation pages and access the data entered by your visitors (obvious stuff, but often skipped in FrontPage introductions). There are two full chapters on managing and publishing web pages -- including how to specify keywords search engines can use, or conversely, how to prevent search engine robots from indexing pages you don't want them to see.
