This article explains how to use Microsoft FrontPage to
import, edit, and publish a Web site created in Microsoft Publisher 2000.
In Publisher 2000, you can create Hypertext Markup Language
(HTML) pages, but you cannot open and edit the HTML pages in Publisher after
they are created. If you want to use Publisher to create and publish a Web
site, it is recommended that you save a copy of your document as a publication
file (.pub). In this way, if you want to make any changes to your Web site, you
can edit the .pub file, save it as a new HTML document, and then republish it
in Publisher. Or, you can import your publication into FrontPage and then use
FrontPage to edit your pages and publish your Web site. You may want to do this
if you want to add the many available FrontPage features and formatting options
to your Web pages.
To import your Web publication into FrontPage and
then edit and publish your Web site, follow the steps in the "Save Your
Publication in HTML Format" and "Import Your Web Site into FrontPage" sections
of this article.
Save Your Publication in HTML Format
When you create a publication in Publisher, it is saved with a
.pub file extension. Before you import your publication into FrontPage, you
must first save (publish) it in HTML format. To do this, follow these steps:

- In the Save as Web Page dialog box, accept

published to the folder that you specified on your hard disk. The home page
file name is Index.html.
