No. But, I'd be interested in this also.

I'm fed up with Adobe's recent offerings. Are the MS tools of a professional quality?

I guess I'm out of the loop. I still use PS5 for images, Homesite 4.0 for HTML, and the old noggin for "gittin' 'er done". I have looked at these current "solutions" for web dev on client machines and generally shake my head. But I suppose most dinosaurs like me did the same thing when the mosquitos and sand flies injected them with parasites that eventually killed them off.

Microsoft in Designers World

My knee jerk reaction is "oxymoron" - sorry can't help myself. :-) Seriously,

Is there any one using expression tools in their design work.

Just so we have the same beast, do you mean Microsoft Expression Studio [microsoft.com] or any of it's related tools? There is one member here [webmasterworld.com] who uses these to it's fullest potential, I am sure there are others. I'm hoping he chimes in, there was a thread here the other day discussing FP but I cannot locate it now.

Expressions Web is the latest permutation of Front Page, and like any other tool how well it works depends on how you use it.

But no, Like tangor, I like to work under the hood . . . . . Photoshop, HomeSite for hand coding, Flash . . . <tries to avoid the tar pit . . .>
