    Create compelling Web sites visually
    If you think and create visually, use the state-of-the-art design surface to layout your Web page. You can make design decisions on the fly, knowing that you're seeing a faithful representation of the final browser-rendered page.

    Drag and drop controls simplify adding rich media, such as Silverlight from Microsoft Expression Blend, Silverlight video, Adobe Flash, and Windows Media. And advanced Adobe Photoshop file import gives you complete control over imported layers and transparency.

    Create standards-based Web sites more quickly and easily
    If you think and breathe code, Expression Web has you covered there too with flexible support for a wide range of essential technologies: PHP, HTML/XHTML, XML/XSLT, CSS, JavaScript, ASP.NET and ASP.NET AJAX, Silverlight, Flash, Photoshop files, and video/audio for webcasting.

    Expression Web speeds the essential task of cross-browser debugging. With SuperPreview, you don't need a Web service to debug your pages on the same machine that you use for development. SuperPreview not only shows a high-fidelity rendering of how pages will look on different browsers, but it also identifies the element's tag, size and position, applied styles, and location in the DOM (Document Object Model) tree so you can quickly fix the error.

    Once you've identified an error, Snapshot Preview helps you fix it faster. By displaying a high-fidelity browser rendering that updates as you edit your code, Snapshot Preview saves you the time and effort of loading the page in a browser for each code change.

    If you're a designer or developer, use Expression Web to do what you do best. And if you're part of a diverse team, sharing an Expression Web project has never been easier thanks to seamless integration with Expression Studio and Visual Studio.

    Expression Web 3 also includes the following full applications:

    • Microsoft Expression Design 3 is the perfect companion to Expression Web. Leverage existing artwork, or use intuitive drawing tools to quickly build sophisticated vector assets.

    • Microsoft Expression Encoder 3 encodes a wide array of video file formats so you can stream live video from webcams and camcorders or screen capture your PC. Make simple edits to video files and enhance your media with overlays and advertising. Choose encoding settings, choose from a range of player templates and publish rich media experiences with Microsoft Silverlight.

    What's new in Expression Web 3

    SuperPreview
    Expression Web provides new tools to make sure that the pages in your site work in multiple browsers.

    Using SuperPreview, you can preview and compare pages simultaneously in multiple browsers, even in multiple versions of Internet Explorer. You can also compare browser views against a comprehensive mock-up ("comp") image.

    You can select individual elements within a page and see details about each selected element, helping you quickly find and fix cross-browser layout and positioning errors.

    Snapshot Preview
    Snapshot Preview provides a high-fidelity browser preview that updates live as you edit your code, saving you the time and effort of loading the page in a browser for each code change.

    Deep Zoom
    You can add both Silverlight and Seadragon Ajax Deep Zoom Composer images to your page in Expression Web from a composition created in Deep Zoom Composer.

    FTP publishing
    Publishing your site with FTP is faster than ever. When you click Publish, Expression Web automatically transfers several files at a time, instead of transferring them one by one, and it transfers them faster. You can easily manage multiple sites and remote locations and you can publish a site to multiple destinations.

    Also, you can now publish your files over a secure FTP connection, using FTPS or SFTP.

    Silverlight
    Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering rich interactive applications for the web. With Expression Web, you can add Silverlight video and applications to your web pages.

    Expression Encoder 3 is now included in Expression Web. You can use it to convert your video to Silverlight and easily add it to your Web page. You can even choose a "skin" to customize how the video player appears on your site.

    Internet Explorer 8
    Expression Web supports Windows Internet Explorer 8, so you can update your older sites to be compliant with and take advantage of the new technologies in Internet Explorer 8.

    Professional graphics tools
    Powerful vector drawing and editing tools in the included copy of Expression Design 3 let you explore new artistic possibilities and create compelling graphic designs and illustrations.

    Deliver visually compelling, standards-compliant Web experiences

    Professional Code Editor

    Professional Design Surface
    Generate elegant, modern CSS layouts with state-of-the-art design surface and the ability to directly manipulate positioning, sizing, margins and padding. With Expression Web's sophisticated CSS rendering engine, you can make design decisions on the fly and see a faithful representation of the final browser-rendered page.

    Visual Diagnostics
    Debug your pages in multiple browsers on the same machine that you use for development with SuperPreview. And Snapshot Preview provides a high-fidelity browser preview that updates live as you edit your code, saving you the time and effort of loading the page in a browser for each code change. The CSS properties palette visually displays the CSS cascade, enabling you to quickly see all of the styles that the current selection in your web page uses, the order of precedence of those styles, and all of the properties and values of those styles.

    Broad support for Industry-Standard Technologies
    With support for a broad range of scripting and server-side technologies, Expression Web provides the flexibility you need. Expression Web supports PHP, HTML/XHTML, XML/XSLT, CSS, JavaScript, ASP.NET or ASP.NET AJAX, Silverlight, Flash, Windows Media, and Photoshop as well as integration with Microsoft Visual Studio and Expression Studio.

    Broad Web Standards Support
    Built-in support for today's modern Web standards makes it easy to optimize your sites for accessibility and cross-browser compatibility. Choose any schema you want - HTML, XHTML, Strict/Transitional/Frameset and CSS 1.0, 2.0, or 2.1--Expression Web 3 will help you build appropriate code with a compatibility checker that highlights non-conforming elements.

    Build Dynamic Interactive Sites
    Whether you're building a site rich with video, audio, or animation, Expression Web makes it easy. You can easily add Silverlight, Flash, Deep Zoom or Windows Media files with drag-and-drop controls.

    Create Professional Graphics for Your Site

    Publishing Flexibility
    Choose the FTP method for publishing your site, whether FTP, SFTP, or FTPS, depending on what your Web server requires. When you click Publish, Expression Web automatically transfers several files at a time, instead of transferring them one by one, and it transfers them faster. You can easily manage multiple sites and remote locations and you can publish a site to multiple destinations. Also, Expression Web can do "live" on-server edits via FTP, which saves time and cost, while also reducing errors.

    Import Photoshop files
    Expression Web can import Photoshop files directly with complete control over transparency, the layers imported and the converted image format (PNG, GIF, and JPEG). Expression Web remembers your layer and format settings so that you can quickly reimport to reflect any changes to the Photoshop original.
