Yes. It wasn’t an April fools joke as someone asked me :). Microsoft actually made SharePoint Designer a free tool. In case you don’t know about SharePoint Designer, it is the replacement product for FrontPage. It’s a great tool that has all the capabilities of FrontPage, but clearly stands apart from that tool. It’s meant to be a tool for power users and developers to modify pages within SharePoint sites. It can be used to edit various HTML files in a stand-alone fashion, but SharePoint is really where it excels.
It’s a great thing that this tool is free. You really can do a lot with it. Enjoy:
