I hadn't thought of that but it makes perfect sense.
 
I have now configured my Frontpage editor to recognize FWX files as HTML files and it seems to work.
 
As I am new to this process, I am looking for "the method" that will be the best way to develop web applications while keeping things fairly simple.
 
I was initially creating the HTML by hand in a text file.  That seems cumbersome.
 
My next effort will be to create templates which I can just pull into Frontpage and put in the HTML needed.  I also have a function which will populate the HTML form with the proper buttons (Previous,Next,Add,Edit,Delete,Find,Exit,Save,Cancel) depending upon the situation.  It is showing some promise.    Thanks.
 
Any other tips from your experience is appreciated.

>>I would like to be able to insert <%=  somename.html %> into the FWX file and have it get processed just as though the HTML was actually in the FWX file.  Then I could create the data entry forms with an HTML editor and use it in my FWX file without having to physically move it from one file to the other.<<
 
If I understand your request correctly, you can already do this.  Why not just edit the .fwx file with your HTML editor?  I do this with Dreamweaver and my favourite text editor (TextPad) all the time.  After all, the .fwx file is just a HTML file with a few %% tags inserted.  Most HTML editors will take files of any extension, not just .htm or .html)
