More information

A page banner is a component that usually appears at the top of each page in a Web site. It can be used to display the title of the page using either text or image elements. A page banner can be used with or without themes or shared borders.

When you add a page banner to a HyperText Markup Language (HTML) page, the title of the page is inserted at the insertion point. If you change the title of the page in Navigation view, the page banner will dynamically update to reflect the new title. If you use a page banner in a Web that does not use themes, the page banner will display the title of the page as text only.

Page Banners and Themes

When you use themes, you can use either text or images for the page banner. If you select an image, the page banner will acquire the image of the selected theme and write the page title into that image. If you change the title of the page, the page banner will update the image to the new page title. If you click Text in the Page Banner Properties dialog box, the banner will appear only as text.
