Microsoft Expression Web Beta 1 : New Microsoft Web Design Tool in Beta
By Mircosoft, 12 Sep 2006
Microsoft late Tuesday released the first beta of its new Web design tool that will compete with the likes of Adobe Dreamweaver.
The program is part of Microsoft's forthcoming Expression lineup, which also includes a graphical design tool and an interface designer.
Expression Web Beta 1 is the second public preview of the tool following a Community Technology Preview issued in May.
Features of the application include the ability to build sophisticated CSS-based layouts, standards compliance and built-in support for ASP.NET 2.0 server technology.
The tool - formerly known by the code-name "Quartz" - replaces Microsoft FrontPage, which has largely been reincarnated as SharePoint Designer and is included in Office System 2007.
