    If "express an idea", then there's no difference. However, if you выражаешь идею, it means you make it put this way or another, and when you высказываешь идею, you just say something occured to you.

    You are making it more complicated than it is, Rtyom

    Here's what Mr Ozhegov thinks:


    высказать = to express something in words

    выразить = to express something anyhow (in words, by your angry face, by some gesture, by your manners, by screaming etc.)
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    Simple translation would help:

    Высказывать - to speak out
    (Prefix Вы (out) + сказывать - to speak)
    Выражать - to express
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    I applied it to ideas.
