Using Comments

FrontPage allows you to add comments to files and pages. These comments are hidden from web viewers but may be useful if you want to indicate the status of a page. Comments are also helpful for adding notes or information for other web designers. You may also use a comment to remind yourself of any corrections or updates that need to be made.
