A step by step guide to using Frontpage 98 and hover buttons

First Steps

3/. Get your HTML ready.

To insert a simple hover button we'll start
with a simple button that links to our home page.
We won't use an image, instead we'll just use
what Frontpage 98 offers us. We want the button to be
of a white background with red arial 10 point bold lettering.
When the users hovers the mouse over the
button we want the button to glow blue.

In Frontpage 98 Editor click on Insert | Active Elements | Hover Button...

Click all the OKs and we end up with this...

Here is the code that we use for this.

><applet code="fphover.class" codebase="../_fpclass" width="120" height="24">
<param name="text" value="Home">
<param name="color" value="#FFFFFF">
<param name="hovercolor" value="#0000FF">
<param name="textcolor" value="#FF0000">
<param name="effect" value="glow">
<param name="url" value="../index.html" valuetype="ref">
<param name="font" value="Arial">
<param name="fontstyle" value="bold">
<param name="fontsize" value="12">
</applet>
