    I want to look at the Web Page Wizard but although the icon is there in General Templates it only opens a blank page - no wizard.

    I have Office XP for Students and Teachers. I have reinstalled and selected 'Run all from computer' for every item and sub item which I assume instals everything. (Just what is the difference between 'Run from computer' and 'Run all from computer'?

    Most templates open but web ones seem be the problem.

    Any help appreciated.

    Run all:

    Chooses ALL of the sub-stuff, I do believe.

    Do all of your other wizards work?

    Can I say something else? Don't use Word to create a web page. I'd rather make one for you (in FrontPage) than see you use Word...

    Thanks.
    Yes ,as far as I know the other wizards work.
    In the meantime I went to Microsoft KB and found the answer. I am not usually sucessful there. Apparently Word 2002 will not run the Web Page Wizard if the language is English(UK). It has to be English(US). KB - Q325914. I changed and it works.
    What is the reason for using Frontpage rather than Word for web pages?

    Word is not the best HTML editor out there. FrontPage is far better and there are those who will argue that, too. However, as a Word geek, and as a person who has created webs in FrontPage, it's much easier to use, and far more flexible than Word.

    If you just want to design a quick web, maybe one of these templates would be better:
    www.classythemes.com

    If you get an *html* template, you need nothing more than NotePad or some other HTML editor to change the text, etc.

    It really depends a lot on the purpose of the web you're creating. If you want some direct help with it, just PM me.

    Glad you found that article. I admit I never looked, and I usually do...
