The name is now Microsoft Expression Web. Good catch. Anyone tried it out?

Using it now, but since I am also trying to learn ASP at the same time, while playing with all the new stuff, not really much to report on yet.

However, I will say I like UI tons better than DW. But I liked almost any UI better than DW's...

Overall a vast improvement over FrontPage.

But, since the learning curve for me is pretty high still - and waiting for our sites to get upgraded with ASP/JSP - mostly just been playing with all the features etc.

I'm watching the demo now.. They keep saying "standards," but what does m$ know about that?
Can anyone confirm/deny that they're doing it (css/html) right?

I made up a 3 page web site on the fly with it.

Without ever touching the code at all:

1. It validates on W3C both XHTML 1.0 and CSS
2. IE6 and IE7 both render it exactly as the preview shows
3. FireFox renders it exactly as the preview shows
