Please differenciate between the fancy GUI-style HTML editor and the
WWW server upload mechanism provided by FrontPage.

I'm writing my HTML pages by hand and I'm happy with it. The boost
web site upload procedure seems to be able to grok that, too.
Btw, my random/index.html page is the only one where the top-level menu
items are not only in Arial (which I don't have on Linux, so it comes
out Courier), but optionally also in Helvetica if Arial isn't there.
