Limmitations of frontpage?
Looking for some help from developers familiar with Frontpage. I'm cleaning up a site for a client that uses FrontPage.
Is it compatible with ASP includes?
Is it capable of using styles defined in an external stylesheet.

No, and possibly no. Frontpage is dead, it has been replaced by the much better, Expression Web which does support those features.Logic without the fatal effects.

Microsoft themselves made the decision back in 2007 that Frontpage would be too hard to fix to create web pages that work in browsers other than IE6 and decided to abandon the program and start over. If theyt decided it was too hard to do when they have all the source code so that they could fix the program then it must be just about impossible to do it with the program as it actually exists.

It does indeed support ASP includes (classic) and has no problem with external stylesheets (even has a drop down to add links to external stylesheets in the main toolbar IIRC).
Early versions of .NET worked with it too (many, many years ago).
Are you editing these files in FP or not?
Either way, go into the settings to tell FP not to change/format the code but leave it as is and you will be fine.
"Upgrading" to Visual Web Developer would be a nice way to make sure the editor does not get in the way though.
