Firebug and a copy of notepad++ are probably more compliant and fully featured than using Frontpage. I can't even remember if Frontpage had basic CSS support or not, its so outdated that Microsoft won't even support it anymore. There has to be better WYSIWYG editors these days too. Sometimes its worth switching tools when it benefits your workflow in the long run and allows you to save time.

I've been using EditPlus for about 8 years. It's not WYSIWYG but I have amassed a lot of template code over the years that I can quickly paste in. I have occasionally had to deal with code produced in Front Page (it's been a long time since), but the absolute WORST WYSIWIG editor used to be Dreamweaver. From what I gather newer versions are improved, but I recall having to debug code that produced a site even simpler in layout than Blues News that consisted of a 20 column table, custom tags and all. The web has certainly become a much kinder place since then, but now it's Microsoft that is the most despised player on the web by leaving their antiquated browsers festering for eons.
