Microsoft Expression Web gives Dreamweaver a Run For Its Money -InformationWeek <ul><li>Brian Wood is a long time Dreamweaver developer who is director of training at Evolve, an Adobe-authorized learning centre in Seattle. With a foot in both worlds, he’s also a moderator of Expression Web’s online beta forum and is helping testers. </li></ul>
  12. 14. <ul><li>“ The biggest thing going for Expression Web,honestly, are the CSS capabilities,”Wood says.”The program does a great job of supporting Web standards.I can click something and see what properties apply to it and what it’s inherited </li></ul>
  13. 15. <ul><li>As a trainer , Wood particularly likes the fact that Expression Web’s design view renders HTML and XHTML code somewhat more accurately on-screen than Dreamweaver seems able to.” There are a few things in there that make Dreamweaver’s previews look slightly different from the same code viewed in a standalone browser, such as IE or Firefox. </li></ul>
