Microsoft Expression Web - Is it All that?

erica_ann writes "I am a Dreamweaver lover and die-hard fan. When I hear / see a website was made with Front Page, I cringe and shrudder. I have spent too many sleepless nights correcting the mangled code from Front Page so it would be cross-browser complaint as well as W3C and even CSS compliant — not to mention meet accessibility standards.

Now, I read that Microsoft has dropped Front Page and is now touting Microsoft Expression Web. From what I have read, it seems to be one of the few (or the only one) WYSIWYG editor that lets you drag and drop — say even an image — and creates a CSS style for it... not using HTML to place it.

I have also seen that it will not work with PHP — which is one of the reasons I love Dreamweaver so much — since it will.

Supposedly the new Microsoft Expression Web will be a rival for Dreamweaver and other top name Editors.. but can Microsoft really make a comeback from Front Page? I plan on downloading it and trying the trial out — but you have to uninstall the Office trail first which I am still crunching through to do a review on.

Have any ./ readers tried out the new Microsoft Expression Web? Is the code produced really that much better than the older Front Page? I would like to hear what others who have tried this have to say about it."
