Standards Ignored as Developers Target IE

Frontpage is not really a "popular" webauthoring tool as much as it is a "common" webauthoring tool.

Most people do not choose to use Frontpage because they think it is great; they choose it because it is readily available. Often people who use Frontpage have never tried anything else and they may not even know the name of any other web tools.
