If you want to use FrontPage forms, your website will need
to be published on a server that has FrontPage extensions. Check
with your hosting provider to make sure that you can use
FrontPage forms on your site. If not, you can delete the
FrontPage form and create your own scripting for a form.
We have provided form on the Contact Us
page. You may see [FrontPage Save Results Component],
which is the message that appears on a published website when a
form is present but is not configured for the server the web has
been published to. To configure the form for your own web,
right-click inside the form area and select "Form Properties"
from the pop-up window. You will most likely want the
information to go to your e-mail address, so delete the contents
of the "file name" box and enter in your e-mail address. You may
need to check with your hosting service to ensure that your
account is configured to allow FrontPage form e-mail responses.

To help your site be optimized for
search engines and directories we have added blank meta tags to
each page. You will need to add your own content in these tags
or delete tags from the page.
Flash detection script:
Note: You will not see the Flash movie while
editing the template.
This template uses the SWFObject (v1.4) Flash detection and
embed script provided by Geoff
http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/. This script detects
whether or not the user has the Flash player, and if it does, it
loads in the Flash movie for them to view. If they don't have the
Flash player, it displays your alternate content. The alternate
content is what you see in your web editor (a static image or text).
The SWFObject script also resolves the IE update issue where
embedded Flash movies require an extra click for interaction; using
the script will allow viewers to interact with the Flash movie
directly. The SWFObject script also allows your website to have
fully validated HTML.
Please be aware that the script may be updated occasionally, and
it is your responsibility to visit the SWFObject site to check for
updates and implement them.
