suddenly can't publish from FrontPage

Unable to open ‘’.

4. An error may have occurred in the web server.

If this server does not support the FrontPage Server Extensions, FrontPage
may still be able to publish to the server via FTP or WebDAV. Please select

I've published for months without problems, now I can't. I've spent hours

troubleshooting guides without success. Any ideas? Thanks!!!

Ask your web host to run a check on the extensions for your account.

As it turns out, I learned from a second call to Yahoo Help that their
server has been down since Friday. Hence the problem. The first tech
assistant apparently didn't know that!!!

Yahoo is a truly terrible hosting service. I suggest you get another
host ASAP.
