Expression Web F12 starts a new instance of IE7 steve msg:3462476 11:11 am on Sep 27, 2007 (gmt 0) I'm trying out EW and so far I'm impressed with its handling of CSS. It's much more than a rewrite of Frontpage.
I've found one annoyance. When I hit F12 to view in browser, it opens a new instance of IE7, even if one is already open. Is their a way to get it just to open a new tab, or even better just reload the page?

If the page is already being "previewed" in IE, in other words the window is already open, click on the browser than hit F5. Marshall steve msg:3463825 2:49 pm on Sep 28, 2007 (gmt 0)

That's what I've ended up doing. But you would think Microsoft could refresh IE from within EW ;-)
FF2 opens a new tab, but I prefer to preview in IE.
I think EW is a superb tool, but a few things could be improved. Like why does spelling error highlighting only work in design view and not code view?

At least it does highligh errors in tags and css in code view, something FP never did.
