Installation: - Frontpage 98 is easy to install. Only three choices present themselves to you on installation: Frontpage Installation, Image Composer Installation and Internet Explorer Installation.

This is a brief overview of the basics you get in this great package. To do a complete analysis of each feature separately would require more room than allowed for purposes of this review. I have been a user of Frontpage since it's very first version and have yet to come across a comparable product. If you would like to know more about this product, e-mail your questions to stop@onramp13.com and I will be glad to elaborate in more detail for you.



Cost Value: - You can't buy another complete web package for a better price.

Packaging / manual: - Packaging: Not much can be said about the packaging. Nice, straightforward and informative.
- Manual: This is the program's biggest downfall. The manual, although it touches on all the features, does not go into any detail at all. However, we are saved, as there are plenty of great books on bookstore shelves dedicated to Frontpage 98.



Overall Comments: - As stated earlier, I have been using Frontpage since it's very first version and have seen it grow to be the industries leading editor (according to Web Developer Magazine and others). As a reviewer and designer, I have had the opportunity to test many of the top editors and this one is still my editor of choice and recommendation.
