I’m Steve Schermerhorn, one of the new developers on the Expression Web team.
When I’m developing a website or application I’m typically dealing with a wide range of colors throughout my project. On more than one occasion it would have been really handy to have a visual reference that also mapped the colors to their names and hex values. I eventually managed to come up with a solution using an XSL to transform an XML file into a nice little color reference table I could print off and hang on my wall. This little ‘how to’ is going to give you a very hands on example on how you can take an XML file and create an HTML page.
That attribute sets the background column of every cell to the value of the ColorValue specified for that row in the Color Value column.

Kool. I was using the Data View feature and found it helps to format numbers as currency. But it doesn't help format dates. So I have the really long version of date/time and it doesn't look good on the webpage. Is formatting dates possible in Expression Web?
