    Image Tracing
    Replicate site layout by placing a picture of how you want your site to appear behind the Design view. This is useful for working from an artist's rendition of your site.
    This would either be fantastic or crappy. I'd love to have a play though

    Xyuri should be posting soon, he has a copy so maybe we'll get the big rundown.

    Yeah, me has, but I'm biased cos I hate all WYSIWYG editors. It does seem to have cleaner code from what I could see, and there was nothing that got in the way of what you wanted to do. cant say much since I didnt test any of the advanced features.

    IMHO, DW_MX is better

    please, please make it so that this thing supports XHTML, and that they put it in the next version of VS.NET. I really hate the design view of it, and if FP2003 is actually half decent, I could for the first time in history, use the same software for developing and designing!

    IntelliSense for authoring Microsoft JScript® and Microsoft Visual Basic®, Scripting Edition (VBScript)
    The Code view provides IntelliSense technology to reduce errors in code writing. IntelliSense includes statement completion and shows the parameters available for the code you're writing, like Visual Studio does.
    COOL!

    What makes me laugh is the HTML Cleanup feature... I'd give it a go. It would take alot to convince me of the worthiness of the product, but I'm open to new things...

    Well, if that's the FP new features, seems like we'll be doing an organization-wide upgrade to Office 2k3. We skipped XP because it was just silly (we're still on 2K), but this seems like a good opportunity to improve productivity.

    Of course, DW has had it since at least v3

    However, I must say that this does look like quite a big improvement. Especially if you're an M$ design shop.

    I love DWMX and will stick with it, but because my company is a MCSP we get all the software for free anyway, so Ill install it and take a look at it.

    nothing says you can't use both.

    I've tried it out. I have never been a fan of FP but this one ain't bad. Mattias, the IntelliSense is a Godsend

    Would I recommend it over DWMX? Probably not, just because I am so used to Dreamweaver and I hate change Is it perfect for a brand new web designer who can't decide, sure. It, IMO is right on par with DW.

    That's quite the statement. Feeling charbroiled yet, or is the flaming just on it's way?

    As long as it has improvements we can use, we'll get it. If it's got XHTML support, we'll worship it. Gently, of course.

    thing I like most about DWMX is the show code and design view at the same time. I love coding and then seeing it happen all at the same time. FP has never had that. I use to teach FP for Microsoft back in 98-99 and at this point would never use FP again. At least not as my primary. Sure perhaps as a secondary if it's worth it.

    Well, I use Notepad to code from FP (right click > open with Notepad), so am able to ALT + Tab between the FP view and Notepad, which is nice (or between Notepad and IE/Moz, which is even nicer)

    If you're into WYSIWYG, that just isn't the same as the DW split view. Gotta hand it to Macromedia on that one. Personally I don't use any WYSIWYG editor. I might end up buying DWMX simply because that's the only way for me to get the next version of Homesite. Then, again...I must just go buy Zend Studio

    Insert top 10 lists
    That sounds cool.

    I still won't use FP. I'll just kep using CF Studio 5 to hand code all my HTML, ColdFusion, PHP, ASP, and JSP. (I absolutely despise the way intellisense works sometimes... Probably just because I'm used to CF Studio...)

    I think FrontPage will fill a gap that Dreamweaver left behind when it went to DWMX: the designer who doesn't need any server-side code help, just needs HTML pages, and doesn't have a ton of money. FrontPage is a good cheap alternative to DW in that respect, but it seems to be a market that Macromedia doesn't want anymore.

    Fair enough, I've been quite happy when doing PHP/ASP stuff. I guess I'm super spoiled when doing .NET stuff in VS.NET then, eh?

    yep, VS.NET has some wonderful features that MS purposely doesn't add into FP. They want to keep FP as their easy to use mom-and-pop software and VS.NET as their enterprise solution.
