MS Script Editor vs Frontpage


A

Good Day,

I use FP at work on my laptop. On my desktop FP is not installed. So, I
started using MS Script Ediotr (MSSE).
It appears to me the MSSE does more or less the same thing as FP: There's a
Design Page to display the results and an HTML Editor.
My question: why use FP at all? What does FP offer that SE doesn't? For my
simple maintenance and development work, it seems quite adequate. For what
kind of work would one use FP?

Thanks in advance.

If it works for you, what does it matter?

Since FrontPage was discontinued by Microsoft several years ago, no one is
using it unless in a legacy environment. I use it to maintain web sites that
I manage becasue of familiarity and functionality. MS Expression Web is the
replacement for FrontPage.

Well Tom, you got a point! It really doesn't; I'm just curious why would MS
cannibalize its own product.

I've looked to see if MSSE is installed with MS Office 2003 on my
laptop. But its not there. is it embedded in say Word, or is there a
separate download for it? I searched the MS web site and couldn't find
a download available. I'm running XP SP3. Many thanks - Chris B.

Have no idea, since it's not related to FrontPage. And, I've never heard of
it. Have you used Google?

Have you looked for it here:

No downloads but it tells you it was installed With Microsoft
Office XP Applications - this means Office 2002. You can't
download it from anywhere officially.

OK - thank you - found MSSE embedded deep in Word 2003 - options:
Tools / Macro. Never noticed it 'cos I don't "do" Macros anymore. Got
caught out with a major suite of Macros in an earlier version of Word
which then had to be all scrapped and re-written when a later version
of Word came along. That was a massive waste of time. Anyway I started
up MSSE and found that its not that intuitive. It seems to require
direct writing of HTML - in which case I could use NotePad - I don't
think so. CJB.
