I have built my business website using expression web 4, but would like to switch to Dreamweaver is it possible to use my existing website in Dreamweaver.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Websites consist of HTML, JS, CSS and serverside code. I don't know expression web 4, but I assume that it is not dissimilar with the exception that the website is slanted towards MS scripts such as ASP.NET, Visual Basic etc.
The basics remain true for all websites and I see no reason why DW cannot be used.
Thank you for your prompt reply, my main concern is that expression web 4 uses frontpage server extensions when uploading to my website, and I have no idea what effect this would have when Dreamweaver uploads expression web pages using FTP.
in my library I found some hints. Please have a look here:

DW ignores FP Extensions and uses ordinary FTP to up- and download files to the site. This will break FP extensions' ability to coordinate legacy page calls to things like shared borders or form proccessing, so it's basically a one-way street once you start using DW with FTP.
