Expression Web builds on FrontPage 2003 technologies to provide an unprecedented level of support for creating standards-based Web sites. However, one of the objectives of Expression Web is to help you create high-quality Web sites based on today’s standards and technologies. This means that non-standards-compliant features and functionality that were familiar tools in FrontPage do not exist in Expression Web.
FrontPage is being replaced by Microsoft Expression Web, a professional Web authoring tool with features that help you design, develop, and maintain exceptional standards-based Web sites. Expression Web’s interface is similar to FrontPage, making it easier for FrontPage users to transition to Expression Web, but Expression Web comes with many new, different tools - and the ability to customize the interface layout - to help Web designers and developers work more efficiently. FrontPage users who are interested in bringing their Web sites to higher levels of sophistication and standards compliancy will find Expression Web an invaluable tool for developing Web sites.
