A good intro to Expression Web 4, not flawless
on 6 May 2014
Level for assessing this book: I have no prior programming or designing experience. I only made a "personal web page" around 15-17 years ago, using Microsoft Word, without noticing any code.
In my view this is a very good book, although it could have been better. At times it is not quite clear what the author means, so the reader must figure it out him/her-self by exclusion (at least that's how it was for me). Mostly the book gives good instruction with clear explanations and a good project to work on. The only problem is that after Microsoft make Expression Web free of charge, it is no longer easy to find the download page for the project the reader is supposed to follow while going through the book. And the project in the book and in the download is not exactly the same (the "myCamera.html" page is not there, instead a "myDesk.html" with different pictures and backgrounds). I would still recommend readers to download the project because it then becomes easier to learn and understand Expression Web. I now have a clear understanding of large parts of Expression Web 4.0 SP2, can read and use HTML and CSS code, and I was happy to learn about the programs ability to create and use Dynamic Web Templates.
