When you preview a Web page that contains a hover button or other Java applet in Microsoft FrontPage, these components may not behave as expected. When you preview these same pages in your Web browser, they do behave as expected.

Note Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 does not have the functionality to generate hover buttons. However, FrontPage 2003 does display hover buttons if they exist in a Web page.

To work around this issue, follow these steps to edit the Java applet in HTML view:
  1. Open your Web page in FrontPage, and then click HTML to change to HTML view.

     <param name="text" value="Button Text">
     <param name="color" value="#000080">
     <param name="hovercolor" value="#0000FF">
     <param name="textcolor" value="#FFFFFF">
     <param name="effect" value="glow">
