Expression Web Interview with Corey Bryant

Q 1. Do you own and maintain your own FrontPage/Expression Web resource(s)?

A. Not yet (I've got a domain)... Otherwise, I admin for the time for web board, and I am a Sage in FP at Experts Exchange

Q 2. Do you have a special tip for Expression Web you can share with our readers?

A . Don't keep comparing Expression Web to FrontPage, it's a new product.

Q 3. What feature would you most like to see available within the next version of Expression Web and why?

A. Possibly ways to "validate" your code with the W3 and other validators. While I understand there are ways where we can enter the code into the W3, making it easier for us will also help to show Microsoft is on the right track at building a WYSWYG complaint editor.

Much more ASP support. A WYSIWYG editor will not help stop ASP users from using ASP and some of us still use it and rely on it, especially the includes.

Q 4. What Expression Web Add-on would you most like to see available and why?

A. Add something to the FTP part so that it is easier and faster for us to user.

Q 5. As a MVP you participate online and answer many questions on (FrontPage) Expression Web. What started you down this road and why?

A.  I started using FP Express way back in 95. I found forums and started helping out there. In 1997 or some time I got burned out and quit helping on the boards. I started to answer more in the early 2000.
