Building on the successful launch of Microsoft Expression Web and after listening closely to your feedback, we are excited to announce the release of Microsoft Expression Web 2 Beta. This Beta release expands your toolset beyond HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, by putting PHP, Silverlight, and ASP.NET AJAX within your reach.

Stacked with new features, Expression Web 2 provides essential tools to design standards-based websites. Web professionals can now author websites on the PHP platform more efficiently with features such as PHP syntax highlighting and statement completion (IntelliSense). Additionally for PHP, we provide an elegant solution that current Expression Web users rave about for previewing ASP.NET pages: Expression Web 2 lets you preview PHP pages locally without a separate development web server! Expression Web 2 supports interactive web content such as Silverlight and Flash, enabling you to easily include this content in your sites. Improved workflow enables you to import Adobe Photoshop designs into your sites with layer visibility control, and reimport changes with layer settings retained. New and enhanced productivity features boost your performance!

Note: You can safely install the BETA of Expression Web 2 on a computer that also has Expression Web 1 on it. If you participated in a private preview program for Expression Web 2, you should uninstall the private preview version of Expression Web 2 before you install the BETA version.
