You're probably referring to FrontPage 2002 or FrontPage XP or FrontPage 10 (all the same thing). There is no FrontPage 2001. ;)
The stuff FrontPage puts in <-- text --> are usually things that the WYSIWYG editor uses to present you with a close approximation of what you'll see in the final results. In the regular HTML it comes out as comments.
If you're talking about the drawing elements of FP 2002, I believe they're dependent on FP server extensions...but don't quote me on that as I don't have FP 10 on this machine. Generally I'd advise staying away from those things. If you avoid FP server extension dependent components like Themes you will be a lot happier in the end.

Off topic a bit here but...
I was using FP for a while then installed suse linux...some great html toys for you to play about with there... You should get yourself some :)

It is frontpage 2002 sorry, I thought about maybe user there arrows as links, but I will not use anything els I dont trust it to be seen by every visitor with different browser, the linux stuff I have never tryed anything from them yet.

The stuff between <-- and --> is interpreted by the FronPage Server Extensions that run on the host and should be ignored by Googlebot.

Is their a particular extension you have using the <!--comments--> ?
It sounds like your new to FP mack, you might wanna try something that'll get yer mouth watering IMO ;) getting you into dynamic content
Either go to Insert > Database results or go to templates and go to Database Interface Wizard.....and get yourself into the realm of dynamic info (not bad for FP eh) ;)
That is the only "FP-ish" thing I use on the program.......but you can alter the HTML due to it being a FP component.....but you can alter the VB script used to generate the database component.......the point being its a good place to play around and learn, while also getting to grips with FP.
FP XP has a few good things that its' predecessors did not have.
/oops, the original topic....
check out the source code of your pages on server side....there are some things that FP generates you can/should remove otherwise its just HTML and text editing....where google see's your source code just as it would with any other site made with another prog

yep to be honest i have been using Fp for about a year and I do actualy like it (did you hear that pin drop) I just wanted to try something different... The machine I am on just now is win xp ans has FP installed on it and I will be keeping it... My other old machine was running win 98 so I did a partion install of suse linux and I love it...Not as graphical as xp but very very stable and pretty easy to get to grips with..so I have been messing about with some of the toys it has to offer....will still be using fp for quick jobs etc...but have an option of a change now :)
