I have such a small question
What's the difference between
Before and in front of , that both of them have the same meaning but can we use either of them in the same place of any sentence
E.g . I stood before her
I stood in front of her
Is there any difference between the first sentence and the second one ?? o
I hope you can help me
and I shall thank thee
Thanks a lot

before may refer to place and time
in front of can refer to place but not time
It is staring you in the face. It is on your doorbell.
Yes, it can refer to time. That possibility did not enter my head.
Why'd you take up so much space for such a small question?
'I stood before her.' is ambiguous. You might have got up first!!
