In FrontPage Editor, when you insert more than one <Body> tag in the HTML source, some of the attributes do not take effect when you open the page in a Web browser.


Although some browsers support this functionality, FrontPage Editor can use only one <Body> tag at a time. When FrontPage Editor encounters a second <Body> tag, it replaces the information used in the previous <Body> tag with the information in the subsequent <Body> tag.


To work around this behavior, use either of the following methods:

  • Specify all of the attributes you want to use by using a single <Body> tag.


  • Specify changes to the page elements--such as color, font, background, sounds, and so on--by clicking Page Properties on the File menu.
