This is not urgent at the moment but I was wondering whether I can publish sties to my Windows 7 Pro copy of IIS with Visual Web Developer Express? How does one do this?

AFAIK, likely you can ... VWD iis is a lighter weight version of iis

Use when the target Web server is IIS 7 but you do not want to (or cannot)
use the full version of IIS 7. This requires Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1,
and IIS Express must be installed separately.
IIS Express hosts sites in a manner that is very similar to IIS 7.
However, to expose your site to the internet, your win7 computer will need to be externally addressable ... this could create some challenges for you ... also, your isp may have some restrictions that are difficult for you to resolve.
Perhaps you could elaborate about your goals?

@ jamie marchant
looks like you might also be able to get the full version of iis 7.5:
