Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Microsoft has replaced the aging FrontPage with a brand-new tool for building state-of-the-art, standards-compliant Web sites. Microsoft Expression Web doesn't just support CSS through and through: it also simplifies the construction of dynamic sites with ASP.NET. If you're looking for a thoroughly hands-on Expression Web tutorial, here it is: Microsoft Expression Web Step by Step.

If you've ever used one of Microsoft's Step by Step tutorials, you know they're clean, visual, and very easy to work with. This one's no exception. Chris Leeds quickly gets you comfortable with Expression Web's interface (some elements reminiscent of FrontPage and Office, others of Visual Studio). You'll load up a sample site from the CD-ROM, then explore its views and pages, rapidly getting a sense of how Expression Web works and "thinks."

Then, using the CD's practice files, Chris Leeds walks you through everything from upgrading old FrontPage sites to publishing database information. You'll learn how to verify site accessibility; think in terms of semantic markup, not just formatting; create and modify sites with Expression Web's built-in templates. Leeds steps you through managing your site's settings; publishing it via FTP or HTTP; managing and backing up live sites; and a whole lot more. Once you've mastered all that, Leeds shows you how to take advantage of ASP.NET 2.0: both its master pages and its powerful site navigation and ad rotation controls. It's a lot to learn, but you'll be surprised how quickly you learn it all -- and it won't hurt a bit. Bill Camarda, from the February 2008 Read Only
