Using FrontPage with Asp.Net - April 2011

If you download this tip please consider making a modest donation.

I recently created a static web site for a laundromat in Quartzsite, AZ. Click here to view the site. The home page was created by the process described in this tip. I used a combination of VS/2008 Asp.Net aspx pages and content created using FrontPage. The process worked well. It becomes the April 2011 tip-of-the-month.

The Application

I wrote a sample web app that demonstrates the process. The process is documented using captured screen images.

The resulting aspx page with FrontPage content.

Notice that the style is inherited from the Asp.Net application.
Maroon text and font sizes.
