VML graphics (autoshapes, text boxes, WordArt) have been removed from
Sharepoint Designer and Expression Web. They only render in Internet
Explorer running on Windows, and force the browser to run in Quirks
mode. Unless you are designing for an intranet where every user is
using Windows and Internet Explorer, VML is best avoided.
If you must use VML, then use FrontPage.
