Visual Studio 2005 vs Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition

Can anyone tell me what are the main differences between  Visual Studio.NET 2005 and Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition from an ASP.NET(VB) developer point of view?
Thank you!

For starters, Visual Web Developer Express includes only the portions
of Visual Studio that pertain directly to creating Web sites. For
example, you can't create Windows Forms projects or class library
projects, etc. The rule of thumb there is that in Visual Studio you can
create multi-project solutions, whereas in Visual Web Developer Express
you can create only Web site projects.

Within the scope of Web sites, Express does not include certain features that are considered more oriented toward professional sites. Examples include the Publish command (which allows you to precompile the site for deployment), source control, the Accessibility checker, and some other features like that.

Is this enough detail?
