Re: [seul-edu] frontpage client?
Netscape comes as part of gnome in any linux distro. I think it has
Composer integrated into it. This works like Frontpage in that it allows you
to upload stuff without resorting to FTP.

Err, if I remember well, those "frontpage extensions" are actually WebDAV.
This is a standard protocole for uploading web pages to a web server, much
like FTP but with some concurrency/locking and such issues addressed.
There is a simple unix client called cadaver
(http://www.webdav.org/cadaver/). Emacs is one of the few applications
which support it.
Does that help? (don't answer before you actually get it to work;)
