14. What is a WebBot?

"WebBots are the mechanism for invoking many of the interactive features
built into FrontPage. These features are added to your site through the
FrontPage Editor | Insert WebBot component
Some, such as ''Include'' and ''Substitution'' allow elements of your site
to be entered once and included in any or all of the pages by inserting
the Bot component referencing that element (e.g., a logo or navigation
bar). Changes made to the 'master' element are made automatically to any
page containing the referencing Bot.
Other Bots, such as Search, Table of Contents and Timestamp, control
dynamic browse-time features. These Bots work behind the scenes to keep
your site up-to-date for visitors. "

Subject: [thelist] What is Web Bot?

Hello Everybody,
Microsoft FrontPage 2000 inserts web bots in web pages for accomplishing
many tasks. Commonly these web bots are shown in the color of comments in
most HTML editors including MS FrontPage 2000.
What are these web bots? Can we create them by writing code in a simple
editor? What is their compatibility?
Can somebody help me.
