So when I open a new project for Windows Web developer 2010 it uses a standard design template. I would like to have a different look and feel for my page, is there a program that I can make the look and then gives me the code I can implement into WWD2010?

I would assume VWD lets you load any (X)HTML/CSS or supported tech (ASP, Java, ?) files, so you can make the page in any software you like and import the file. Presumably there would be some way to do this in VWD, but the best I can do is point you at this link.

From my experience using various MS products, if you're using the Express -- that is, free -- version, you might not be able to deviate much from the standard templates. Microsoft is really bad at offering useful demos, they seem to prefer "look at all this cool stuff you could do if you pay us lots of "

Unless you're married to Visual Studio/.NET for some reason, I'd recommend looking at Dreamweaver. I hate most code generated by the WYSIWYG programs but Dreamweaver seems to at least TRY being less offensive.
