    2). You can add javascript dropdown menu to a single page or to many pages using Shared Borders, Include Page or Dynamic Web Template so that you won't have to add it into each page separately.

    Insert menu in FrontPage

    - Open the generated in Vista Buttons menu.htmlpage in any text editor. Copy all code within the following tags:
          <!-- Begin Vista-Buttons.com -->
            ...

    Insert menu in FrontPage

    Insert menu in FrontPage

    - Go to the "Edit Menu" with FrontPage and select the "Paste" option to paste the menu code that we copied to the clipboard earlier. Since the phrase we typed was highlighted, it will be replaced when we paste the code in.

    Insert menu in FrontPage

    - Now you should copy the "menu-files" folder into the same folder with your index.html page.

    Copy menu files in FrontPage

    - Notice that in the Design mode your menu may be displayed not in the proper way. It is normal. You should view the menu in the Preview mode.
