Welcome to Microsoft Expression Web 2 On Demand, a visual quick reference book that shows you how to work efficiently with Expression Web 2. This book provides complete coverage of basic to advanced Expression Web 2 skills.

How This Book Works

You don't have to read this book in any particular order. We've designed the book so that you can jump in, get the information you need, and jump out. However, the book does follow a logical progression from simple tasks to more complex ones. Each task is presented on no more than two facing pages, which lets you focus on a single task without having to turn the page. To find the information that you need, just look up the task in the table of contents or index, and turn to the page listed. Read the task introduction, follow the step-by-step instructions in the left column along with screen illustrations in the right column, and you're done.

What's New

If you're searching for what's new in Expression Web 2, just look for the icon: New!. The new icon appears in the table of contents and through out this book so you can quickly and easily identify a new or improved feature in Expression Web. A complete description of each new feature appears in the New Features guide in the back of this book.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Most menu commands have a keyboard equivalent, such as Ctrl+P, as a quicker alternative to using the mouse. A complete list of keyboard shortcuts is available in the back of this book and on the Web at http://www.perspection.com.

Get Updates

Like any software, it continues to change and get better with updates and patches, so it's important to regularly check the Microsoft Expression Web site at http://www.microsoft.com/products/expression/.

Expression Studio

Expression Web is part of the Microsoft Expression Studio, which includes Expression Design, Blend, and Media. Expression Design is a professional illustration and graphic design tool that lets you build compelling elements for both Web and desktop application user interfaces. Expression Blend is the professional design tool to create engaging, Web-connected, user experiences for Windows. Expression Media is a professional asset management tool to visually catalog and organize all your digital assets for effortless retrieval and presentation. See Chapter 16, "Working with Expression Studio" for more information and step-by-step instructions for using individual Expression Studio programs.
