Microsoft Expression Web: Editing PHP Files

December 9th, 2009 No comments

Ever tried editing php file with Microsoft Expression? I thought I would give Microsoft Expression Web a go recently and was using it to edit some PHP files. Big mistake! I suddenly started getting PHP error messages that the headers had already been sent out, such as:

Cannot send session cache limiter – headers already sent


Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by

Very annoying! I couldn’t spot anything wrong with the files in Notepad or Dreamweaver. I was very confused. So I decided to open the files in my web hosts online text editor. Lo and behold, Expression Web had put some odd characters before the opening PHP tags on a couple of files! I removed the characters in the text editor and now everything is working fine again.

Moral of the story? Microsoft is rubbish!
