How do you access a Frontpage subpage directly through IE

I have a website that I created and published using Frontpage.  I can get to the home page directly through IE (or another browser), but when I try to access one of the subpages directly, I get an error from IE, saying the page does not exist.
For example:
www.mywebsite.homepage works just fine.  I can navigate to any of the subpages without a problem, but if I try to reference www.mywebsite.homepage/subpage directly, I get the error.

What could be the problem?

Thanks...Tom

Try to access the page using Firefox, and see if there is any specific error.  Also, Brundo is correct that you should always place the file extension at the end of the page URL.

I get the same error with firefox as I do with ie.  I am including the ".htm" extension on the page.  This is all that is told me by the browser(s):

 The page you tried to access does not exist on this server. This page may not exist due to the following reasons:

   1. You are the owner of this web site and you have not uploaded (or incorrectly uploaded) your web site. For information on uploading your web site using FTP client software or web design software, click here for FTP Upload Information.

   2. The URL that you have entered in your browser is incorrect. Please re-enter the URL and try again.

   3. The Link that you clicked on incorrectly points to this page. Please contact the owner of this web site to inform them of this situation.

This sounds like a hyperlink or url issue.  Try to make sure that the page is spelled correctly, and then try typing it in the address bar.  Also, try this:

1.  double click on the page in FrontPage
2.  Go to the "Browse" icon and try browsing the page alone using either IE or firefox.

If the page error comes up, then you have something wrong in the code of the page.  If you like, submit the code and we can look at it for you to determine if that might be the issue.

I addition to spelling error joepolice mentioned...

For a server it is the same thing if you request a page by click on a link or by typing its address. I would look at the address which you get by clicking on the link and compare it with the address which you typed in.

Are these two addresses equal?

It was a typo in the URL.  For some reason, I didn't think the URL was case sensitive.
