Displaying Web Pages in the HTML Format

One of the most user-friendly components of Expression Web is its capability to automatically convert text and images into HTML format. If you’re familiar with HTML, you might be comfortable enough to work in this mode. HTML adds a series of format instructions to your content using tags, such as <i>, that indicate how to format the text for display on the Web. Use the Quick Tag Selector to select any tag in your Web page. Use the Quick Tag Editor to insert, wrap, and edit HTML tags. Expression Web uses colored text to distinguish between elements when working in HTML format.
