2. VBScript or also known as Visual Basic Script.

at is JavaScript?

Please note this is not the same as Java. Java is a full fledged programming language

functionality according to their needs, stuff like Confirmation of forms, checking
input data and adding general functionality which HTML can't give a developer.
There is an endless list of functionality that can be added to an HTML page using

over them, Slide show animations, Custimised message and pop

graphics and links on the page exactly where you want it and Frontpage will code
the page for you.

allow Visual Interdev
and Frontpage server extensions to communicate with the web server. This is
important cause the tools use the extensions to create new projects or load existing

data from the website to a database.

What is CGI Scripts?
