SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft FrontPage Explorer, when you create a Web using one of the wizards or templates that uses an example link, the link does not point to the desired location. For example, if you use the Employee Directory template, your directory may contain one or more links to a site that contains obscene or offensive material.

CAUSE

The FrontPage 97 Personal Web Wizard contains some example Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) that are not owned by Microsoft Corporation.

STATUS

Microsoft is aware of this problem and has registered the following addresses. NOTE: These domain names were registered after the release of Microsoft FrontPage 97.
Http://Example.Microsoft.Com
Mailto:Example@Microsoft.com
This problem was corrected in Microsoft FrontPage 98.

MORE INFORMATION

When you run the FrontPage Personal Web Wizard, FrontPage creates Web content that contains two example URLs which are meant to demonstrate how to create links to other Web sites and to be modified to point to the site you want. Microsoft does not own either of these URLs and therefore does not control the content.
