I don’t know exactly when, but Expression Web is listed on my MSDN as a development tool. I just finished converting my site to Dreamweaver because Microsoft hasn’t put Expression Web on MSDN. They claimed it was for designers, and it was not a development tool.
As I said, I don’t know when it appeared. My MSDN subscription has a listing of when new products are posted to the download area. I searched that going back for over a month and Expression Web is not listed. Interesting. I wonder if Microsoft is trying to do this quietly so as not to arouse any more bad press over the decision. (Well, bad press among MSDN techo-geeks.)
I will be posting the Dreamweaver version of my site tomorrow. Now I have to seriously rethink Dreamweaver vs. Expression Web as my tool of choice for maintaining my own web site. I was already planning to write about my Dreamweaver experiences for my June edition of Scott’s Column. It looks like that is going to be more involved than I originally planned.
