FrontPage is part of the Microsoft Office family (sort of) and VS.Net is
the next generation of the old VisualStudio 6.0 which is resting

SharePoint is technically Office-related... or so the documentation
would say.  Thus... FrontPage is tied in with SharePoint (which, IIRC,
uses FrontPage extensions).
