Only for absolute beginners
Although the book description says it is for beginning to advanced users, this books is really only for absolute beginners to web publishing and to Windows apps as well.
This book is really just a collection of examples (hence the step-by-step) to walk you through. However, the text is probably 3 times longer than it needs to be. The book repeats very simple steps (do you really need to show the user how to go to File...Save in every single example?) in all the examples and also pointless steps. For example, many of the examples have the same two or three steps to open the file (click on open, highlight a file, press OK). These steps could be combined into one in future examples.
Further proof is that there is a whole Appendix on an intro to Windows. For example, how to click with a mouse, open and close windows, etc.
Overall this book should probably be called Frontpage for Dummies. If you are an absolute beginner to Windows applications and web publishing, this book would be good for you to get going quickly with Frontpage. However, if you are already comfortable with Windows applications or you have done any sort of web design, this book is simply too beginner.
I'm giving it 2 stars only because it would be good for absolute beginner. However, it is misleading to say it is from beginner to advanced. If the book clearly stated it was only for beginners or was called something like Frontpage for Dummies, I would rate it higher.

If you want to be a FrontPage expert, do not buy this book.
I purchased this book because this was made by Microsoft Press, hoping that this book has a complete information on using FrontPage 2000. However, upon completion of reading and following procedures on every single page in 2 days, I found that it only covers certain basic features and does not cover any of the advanced features. (e.g. editing frames, creating search menus, using data base, displaying and replying to comments, etc.) I have to buy another book on FrontPage and wasted money and time on this book. If you want to be a FrontPage expert, do not buy this book, but buy the book with more detailed explanation on advanced features. (Running FrontPage 2000 from Microsoft or FrontPage 2000 Bible from IDG are good choices.)
