Expression Web Designer

Expression Web Designer is Microsoft's new tool for building and enhancing Web sites with design elements such as cascading style sheets, personalized task panes and compatibility with non-Microsoft Web browsers like Firefox. Web sites built using Expression Web Designer can support the XML, ASP.NET and XHTML data types. The product complements both Microsoft's existing application development tool, Visual Studio 2005, and the tools in the upcoming .NET 3.0, which allows for better collaboration among the designers and developers who are building an application.

Expression Web Designer is one of three products in Microsoft's Expression suite of tools for Web designers. The other tools are the Expression Interactive Designer, which lets designers combine 2D images with multimedia content and 3D images, and the Expression Graphic Designer , which creates both vector and bitmap images for use in applications. The Expression suite is viewed by many as Microsoft's response to Adobe's popular Photoshop, Illustrator and Flash graphic design products.
