Abstract: Expression Web 3 has introduced a ‘Code View toolbar’ and ‘Code View Submenu’ under the Edit menu, to give you more control over the source code. We can add or remove temporary bookmarks to our code using these features. This article digs deep into what these temporary bookmarks are and how to add or remove them.
Add temporary bookmarks in Code View in Microsoft Expression Web 3
Expression Web 3 has introduced a ‘Code View toolbar’ and ‘Code View Submenu’ under the Edit menu, to give you more control over the source code. You can add temporary bookmarks using the toolbar or the submenu. Temporary bookmarks are code bookmarks that mark particular locations in the code of a web page, to be able to quickly navigate between sections of your code.
Code bookmarks are different from the HTML bookmarks. The later are HTML anchors that point to a hyperlink. These Code Bookmarks are known as ‘Temporary Code Bookmarks’ since they work only in the Code View while the page is open. As soon as you close the web page, Expression Web deletes all the code bookmarks from the page.
See image below:

Temporary bookmarks are only a visual and navigational aid to help you while coding. They do not influence you actual web page. Hence mentioned earlier, they are not to be confused with the HTML bookmarks.
