I have been able to edit FP pages in HotDog without any problems, but
HotDog is not a WYSIWYG program, which may make a difference. It
shouldn't, because an HTML file should be an HTML file no matter what
software was used to created it, but... :-/

Yes, that was one point where I disagreed with the author -- it *is*
possible to build a site using FrontPage that does not require the
@#$%&* extensions. But it means you can't use the shiny, sparkly things
that attract people to FP in the first place. And you're still likely to
end up with broken HTML.
