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)
