When you attempt to list a table of contents in newest to oldest order inthe Discussion Web Wizard after you have installed the FrontPage 98 ServerExtensions, the articles are posted in oldest to newest order instead.

For example, if you post three articles before you upgrade the FrontPageServer Extensions, they will be listed in newest to oldest order in theTocproto.htm file. After you upgrade the FrontPage Server Extensions, theoriginal articles retain their order, but new articles are posted inoldest to newest order, as shown in the following table.
