Adding tab controls in FrontPage

I have FP 2003. I'd like to add tab controls to a page. For example, see www.1and1.com: the tabs are Home, Domains, Mail, etc. When you click on the tab, the tab color changes and the text for the tab is displayed.

Is there an easy way to add tabs like that to a FP page?

Thx, Bill

you can do something similar to that in frontpage using navigation buttons or hover buttons
http://www.2bubbasandthebible.com is an example of using hover buttons (home, statement of faith,etc..)
http://www.saxonbag.com is an example of using navigation buttons

for more info on each, check help in frontpage

or
http://www.vividoffice.com/support/fpfaq.asp has some good examples of the navigation buttons topic

The problem is, the button doesn't change color according to whether it's the currently-selected one or not. I know that I could do it by setting up each page with the same buttons but different color according to status, but that's a pain. I was hoping for something more automatic.

not as far as I know
they probably have created a different image for each toolbar on each page - and then use the same image map
but as far as I know - there is nothing automatic in front page that can do this
creating a tabbed interface manually should not be that difficult - depending on the number of tabs/pages of course
