I can't find anything on the net about this.  Does anyone know if a 
database developed on SQL2000 can be restored on SQL2008 
Express?  Are there any problems?

I have a client that only has SQL2008 Express.  I already have 
SQL2000 and SQL2005 installed on my development machine but am 
reluctant to add another version.  If I can get away with developing 
in what I am familiar with and restoring to the newer version I would 
be a happy camper.
