As you create a new page and start adding content to it, or when you open an existing page, the way it appears in Code view or Design view is laid down by Expression Web. For instance, in Code view normal text appears in black, HTML comment appears in gray, in Design View Layout table border is green in color and so on .This is so that you can differentiate between the different elements and content on your page. But you can always customize them according to your liking.
To customize colors and font in Code and Design View
- Go to Tools menu > Page Editor Options.
- In the Page Editor Options dialog box, switch to Color Coding tab.
- The default selection is Code View unless you changed it. Choose the view you want to customize.
- Choose an item from under the Display items box and select Item Foreground, Item Background and Font style.
- Click OK.
