I wanted to know if there is a way to use templates while designing a website in frontpage?
Till now i have been creating web pages using the copy all (select all) and paste in a new page to create a new webpage similar to any previous page....i wanted to know if it's possible to create a template so that if i need to change some text in all the pages it can be done by changing just 1 page? is it possible

Probably the easiest thing you can do is to create a template and name it template.htm

Then when ever you build a new page open template.htm add your content and "save as" and give it it's propper name.

I agree with what mack says, but it's better to open template.htm then save it with it's proper name eg: faqs.htm, then add your content. The reason being (and I actually use DW, but I'm sure the principle is the same) is that you have to save the page to preview it. If your like me, you just say "yes" to the prompt that says save to preview, and if it's still "template.htm" you will overwrite it.

Using Frontpage it's better to save the page you want to use as a template as a "FrontpageTemplate" with the extension .tem. This will then be saved centrally with all the other templates you create. I have been doing this since FP2000 and in FP2003 it's much better organised.

If you enable the task pane you will see that you have some choices for new pages - blank, based on a page you have created previously, templates you have created or FP templates.
Maybe more, but I only use the ones I have created, or maybe previously created pages - if I am not starting from scratch, that is.

Just remember to use the .tem extension when saving.
