Developers on Monday will get their first chance to play with a Web layout and design tool Microsoft hopes will lure developers from Adobe Dreamweaver.

Microsoft plans to release an early, Community Technology Preview (CTP) version of Expression Web Designer, one of three new tools designed to compete with rival Adobe's extensive Web design portfolio.

Yeah the MSN web components are FP2003 .. You know I use that alot though..

Far easier (for my skill level) to use MSN Maps rather than G or Y's API mapping. Also MSN now supports push pins and mouse over info call out windows , very sweet to simply add a push pin , add my info and create the link and have the map on my pages in seconds .

Yea that's where I was going... MS making is easier to reference MSN websites. Kind of helps with market share don't ya think... Especially if MS bundle an "express" version of expression with Vista.

Now for the BIG question (which will save me from hand-editing 1,000 pages)...

Does MS Expression Web Designer recognize FP includes?

Yes.

Finally installed this morning. Been using it for the past few hours and it's basically FrontPage 2003 on Steroids. Feature rich with a bunch of different toolbars to configure. ;)

So far, so good.

<<Yes>>

Now we're talking!

Two Questions for anyone who knows:

1.) When you hit the publish button, I assume it simply FTP's the files up, since there's no more Extensions?

2.) Do sites created with Expression Web Designer have to run on MS servers?
