SuperPreview speeds browser compatibility testing

Top 10 Features
2. Professional Design Surface Generate elegant, modern CSS layouts with state-of-the-art design surface and the ability to directly manipulate positioning, sizing, margins and padding. With Expression Web’s sophisticated CSS rendering engine, you can make design decisions on the fly and see a faithful representation of the final browser-rendered page.
3. Visual DiagnosticsDebug your pages in multiple browsers on the same machine that you use for development with Expression Web SuperPreview. SuperPreview supports Internet Explorer, Firefox with a local client, and Macintosh Safari with an online service beta.
5. Broad Web Standards SupportBuilt-in support for today\'s modern Web standards makes it easy to optimize your sites for accessibility and cross-browser compatibility. Choose any schema you want – HTML, XHTML, Strict/Transitional/Frameset and CSS 1.0, 2.0, or 2.1 - Expression Web 4 will help you build appropriate code with a compatibility checker that highlights non-conforming elements.
7. SEO ReportingExpression Web gives you the information to improve your Web site’s relevance in search results by recommending how to make the site content more search engine-friendly.
9. Publishing Flexibility Choose the FTP method for publishing your site, whether FTP, SFTP, or FTPS, depending on what your Web server requires. Also, Expression Web can do “live” on-server edits via FTP, which saves time and cost, while also reducing errors.
10. Import Photoshop files Expression Web can import Photoshop files directly with complete control over the layers imported and the converted image format (PNG, GIF, and JPEG). Expression Web remembers your layer and format settings so that you can quickly reimport to reflect any changes to the Photoshop original
