Keyboard shortcuts for FrontPage 2000

Every day, I try to find a way to work more easily, and save time. Creating a web site is pure enjoyment for me, until I get to around the 500th page, when the could-be-ugly task of "managing" a site rears its pretty head. 

Fortunately, one thing you can do to quickly accomplish tasks you use frequently is to use  shortcut key combinations, instead of menu commands or buttons. When using FrontPage, many of those key shortcuts are ones with which you may be already familiar, if you have used many of the Microsoft Office products. 

I put this list on the web site because I wanted it handy for my own use, but I offer it to you, and have formatted it for printing (for us all!)
