    Generated files

    2). You can add javascript popup 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.

    Open website in FrontPage

    - To create the Dynamic Web Template you should do the following things:
