    wasting lots of time guessing about CSS

    I use the TopSite 3.1 style editor. It helps me figure out what attributes work with what HTML tags, and even test them. I would type a tag like "div" and open a curly brace, and it would close the brace and highlight all the attributes i could use, with a chosen level of CSS.

    Anyway, it worked pretty well and it saves me a lot of guessing, but I thinks its like 10 years old. I like being backward compatible, but is there anything newer I should know about that's free that might let me see newer options and attributes? Maybe an on-line style editor that's kept up to date somewhere on the W3C schools site?

    I prefer not using the autocomplete myself ... it makes you learn all the properties

    Thanks! I'll take a look. I'm on Linkedin, but I'm no pro web professional. I'm more an electronics and programmer guy. My most successful website ever was a total mess, as i was literally learning as i coded it. But it still was a lot of fun, entertained a lot of people, and continues to spread good cheer: Http://peterpan.pixyland.org

    That is the craziest website I've ever seen. Strong work!

    I prefer Rufio over Peter Pan though.
