Okay, I've read the robots.txt tutorial. It says the robots.txt file should be created in Unix line ender mode.
I would like to add a robots.txt file to my site, so I need step by step instructions please (frontpage user a plus!).
Thanks,
Web Footed Newbie :)

I'm 99% sure you can use notepad.

After all, it's a .txt file, and that's notepads big mission in life: to write .txt documents.

Be sure to upload it in ascii format, though.

Thanks, I thought I could write it in notepad. If I write it in notepad, can I save it and then add it to frontpage as an additional page? Or when you say upload, how do you do that?
Thanks,
Web Footed Newbie:)
