I've been working on accessibility tips for Front Page for a few months now
(with assistance from Mo Hencemann, Nathan Lowell, and Salwa Mohammed)- it
continues to be a work in progress. Please review "Guidelines for Developing
Accessible Web Pages in FrontPage 98 and FrontPage 2000" on my website at
and give me feedback so that I can make it better.
Many thanks, KoKo Oyler, Director, Disability Services, Regis University

Even more serious is this
If you wish to provide alternative text associated with an <AREA> tag, you
will need to do so through the HTML view.
It used to be that after you did this, front page would erase the alt
text. I assume that's fixed now.
