ADDING CONTENT TO WEB PAGES

Expression Web is a powerful WYSIWYG editor


This means there is no need to type html code
Works much like a word processor interface
Allows users to drag and drop elements directly onto
the web page.

Add a heading
Paragraph
Subheading
Numbered list
Bulleted list

PREVIEWING THE WEBSITE

It is important when designing web pages to


continually test your pages in multiple web
browsers to ensure they work and appear as
intended
The same page does not necessarily display the
same way in different browsers.
Expression Web provides a preview feature that
allows you to preview your pages in all the
different browsers installed on your computer
and in multiple different window sizes.

PREVIEWING THE WEBSITE


To preview the web page:
File> Preview in Browser (or use toolbar icon)
> Choose the Browser version and screen size

Shortcut: F12 , previews in the last browser you


tested in.
