Marshall, While I've carefully read your response and appreciate, it still doesn't provide an answer to the straightforward question, which is "If Expression is so good, and Frontpage is "so bad", then how can you do that same thing we used to do in Frontpage with Expression, namely, highlighting a formatted paragraph (which in turn highlights the code), and doing a find and replace (on either the design or the code it represents)? It's particularly important since Expressions (and most modern web editors use CSS / styles sections in the headers which are held in separate areas. Seems to me (I'm a beginner!) that there should be a SIMPLE SOLUTION where, when you highlight formatted text in Expression Web, it highlights the accompanying code NO MATTER WHERE THAT CODE IS, ie it also highlights the relevant styles in the header so that you CAN do a replacement.
Whoever has this solution will certainly be a genius in my eyes. Until then, Expression, while it, indeed, has made my pages load faster, has made my edits a heck of a lot harder, if not impossible. I want to be able to find & replace small sections of formatted code like i used to / can in Frontpage. CAN ANYONE SHARE WITH ME HOW THEY DO THIS?
