When you install Microsoft Office 2000 or Microsoft Word 2000, and then choose Word as the default HTML Editor, Word may remove FrontPage 2000 from the HTML Editor list in Internet Explorer 5.x, leaving Microsoft Word 2000 and Notepad as the only HTML Editor options.


This problem occurs when Word 2000 changes the default HTML Editor key without giving a Win.ini file change notification.


To work around this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Remove Internet Explorer, and then re-install it.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options, and then click the Program tab.
  3. In the HTML Editor list, verify that FrontPage 2000 appears as one of the options, and then click OK.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
