  ALLDATA -- Jim Grant's Tech Tips -- 91 Honda Civic 1.5L, Front Engine Oil Seals
I was advised that while I’m there, I may want to change the front oil seals for the crankshaft and camshaft.
The only way you can check the new seals for leakage is to put the engine back together and run the engine.
I suggest that you follow the advice you received and replace the front camshaft and crankshaft oil seals when replacing the timing belt.

  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: FR layout
In automobile design, an FR, or front-engine, rear wheel drive means a layout where the engine is in the front of the vehicle and drive wheels at the rear.
Placing the engine at the front gives the vehicle a traditional long hood (in British English "bonnet") and engine cooling is simple to arrange.
Front wheel drive is the most common form of engine/transmission layout used in modern passenger cars, where the engine drives the front wheels.

 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Driveshaft
A driveshaft or driving shaft or Cardan shaft is a mechanical device for transferring power from the engine or motor to the point where useful work is applied.
Most engines or motors deliver power as torque through rotary motion: this is extracted from the linear motion of pistons in a reciprocating engine; water driving a water wheel; or forced air or water in a turbine.
Compression in material science, physics or structural engineering, is the stress state of materials where the volume tends to decrease (compaction).

This upgrades two of the four motor mounts -- the "number 1" mount, which is toward the bottom of the engine, against the firewall, and the "number 2" mount, which is also at the bottom of the engine, in the front near the radiator.
It is very difficult to see either the front or rear engine mount from the top of the engine bay, but some of the photos later on will make it clear where they are.
The most noticable difference with the new engine mount in place is that the car shakes quite a bit when you start it up, and it vibrates a lot at idle speeds.

 How to Determine if Your Car Is Front- or Rear-Wheel Drive | eHow.com
Understand that front-wheel drive means the power from the engine and the transmission goes to the front wheels; rear-wheel drive means the power goes to the rear wheels.
The front of the engine is always where the belts are located.
Check both under the hood for the position of the engine and under the car for the axles to be sure, because not every car follows the rules for engine position and front- or rear-wheel drive (see Tips below for examples of cars with variations on this rule).

 Drivetrain Layout
I later learned that the first letter of the designation is used to designate the engine location and the second letter is to designate the which pair of wheels the engine drives.
The engine placement is a big factor to determine the moment of inertia and the weight distribution of car because many other mechanical/electrical components of a car are usually located close to the engine.
Steering, engine, transmission, wheels and so on are all very close by, there is no need to build long axles to transmit the engine power to the other end of the car.
