Expression Web Visual QuickStart Guide cover

Welcome to the companion Web site for Microsoft Expression Web 2 for Windows VQS. The book gives you a jump start on using Microsoft's improved Web creation tool.  Gone are all the crufty code hijinks of its predecessor, FrontPage. Unlike FrontPage, Expression Web uses Web standards. It also includes some of the handiest CSS tools available. You'll find example files from each chapter

Using the example files

The examples listed below are ready to download, chapter by chapter to match the book. Each chapter is compressed as a .zip archive: once you download a file just double-click to expand.

I'm still tidying up the files and uploading them chapter by chapter until I finish the job. That way, early-bird readers can get started without having to wait for all the chapters. .

Except for the first few chapters, which are pretty simple, each chapter folder contains example files of what the page looks like before you start working on it and what it should look like after you're done. The file names make it pretty obvious (usually something like examplefileBEFORE.htm and examplefileAFTER.htm). Whenever images are required in building the page, you'll find a separate images folder within the chapter folder.
