Sorry for the slow reply... I've been out of town for a couple
The Personal Web Server (PWS) is installed on your local machine
and is what allows you to do all your authoring on your machine,
then publish to the Web. Without some Web server (either the
Internet or something local), FrontPage can't run. In fact, you
may have noticed, you can't even install FP unless there is a
Web server installed.
I assume the Task List is like the ToDo list in FP97. Probably
just a place for you to make a list of the things you need to
do. The cool thing is that if you have multiple people
authoring, they all see the same list... it's stored in the Web.
As you complete the tasks you mark them as done... then can go
back later and see what was done and when.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
I haven't gotten FP98 yet because I can't risk the Beta version
messing up the couple of Web's for which I am responsible.
Can't wait 'til it's done, though!
