I'm wanting to upgrade my frontpage from my current version to 2003? Is there any issues I should be concerned with? Such as, the new version corrupting my web pages that I have now?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld writer51!

There shouldn't be any problems. Usually FP installs go without fail. ;)

P.S. You're going to notice a rather significant difference in the GUI when upgrading from 2000 to 2003.

Thank you for the welcome. I'm glad I found such a great site with so many knowledgeable people.

Now, as to the 2003 GUI interface, you have my curiosity up.
Could you possibly enlighten me to some of the changes? Or at least tell me if it is for the better, or for the worse.

I did this last year - no problems at all, some areas take a little while to get used to a different way of doing things - like any upgrade.

No issues whatsoever with corrupting existing pages - the opposite in fact - FP 2003 will clean up less than slick FP2000 pages if you select "reformat html" from right-click in code view.

Fantastic, I like the thought of cleaning up my html. I try to do it manually, now. Takes time.

Keep in mind that within a few months FP2003 will be replaced by Expressions Web Designer [webmasterworld.com].
