On the other hand, if you or your client wants to use FrontPage to
create web pages and publish them to any web host without "Extentions"
it's not a prob. FrontPage has the (internal) option to publish with ftp.
I have a couple of clients who do just that.

All the server Extentions really provides is support for some "cute"
things MS decided to put in (what they call web components), not to 
mention the ability to edit pages residing on the server, directly.
Otherwise FP is a formidable WYSIWYG HTML editor w/o using the "MS web
components" b-s.

BSD has must have good support for Extentions however, Yahoo! and SBC 
virtual hosting is mostly on BSD and FrontPage support is an included option 
on all plans.
