There are a variety of different options when it comes to viewing not only the webpage, but the entire website structure. In terms of viewing the webpage, you have the freedom to change between "Design" view or "Code" view. Another "Split" view is available that shows both coding and visual design. This is an excellent feature, as the Design option will help beginners excel. At the same time, the Code option allows for increased flexibility and lets more advanced users edit HTML elements.
This is almost identical to Dreamweaver, but if you would like to see how each looks, you can click on the images to your left. Once you do, you will be redirected to a larger version of the screenshot.
In addition to these viewing options, you are given the functionality of viewing the entire structure of the website and its many components in different ways.
The most common viewing option is "Site View." This option provides you with a graphical list showing all folders, images, and HTML files; among others. You can use this list to edit each component with one simple click.
In addition to this common view, there are five additional views that the you can use.
Publishing View: This is only available after connecting the website's files to the server where they will be published. This view shows all files that have been published and are now live on your website.
Files View: Similar to the traditional Site View, but with further flexibility. The files are listed and organized as specified by you, and the organization options include All, Recently Added, Recently Changed, or Older Files.
Shared Content View: This view will display files that are "shared" on the website. For example, Dynamic Web Templates, Master Pages, and Style Sheet Links are all displayed to you through this view.
Problems View: This view will list any and all problems within your website. This includes Unlinked Files, Slow Loading Pages, and Hyperlinks. This option is helpful in tracking down where certain errors are occurring.
Hyperlinks View: This is the last viewing option in Expression Web 4. The Hyperlinks View allows you to see - in a graphical representation - the number of links pointing to a particular webpage, and where they are coming from.
As you can clearly see, there are a lot of different views that you can utilize. Each of them have their own benefits and negatives; however, this is one of the stronger points in Expression Web 4.
The reason for this praise is because the views provide accurate data and do so in a simple-to-read way. These views are much easier to read than those found in the Reports feature.
