    CSS file previewer

    Is there a web utility or OS X freeware utility that previews a .css file? Something that has an empty box model frame with some text - in a row - for each css entry in the file?

    CSS viewer

    I not sure what you're looking for.
    Opera let's you "View -> Style -> Debug with outline".
    And the Firefox Firebug and DOM Inspector extensions provide a lot of information, and can "blink" an element's outline.

    You mean something that takes a css file and builds a sample html page for it? That would be tricky since it wouldn't know what the intention was. How would it handle nested tags, parent and child, and all that?

    Interesting idea, though. I don't know of such a thing.

    Yeah, something like that but not so complex. Each style would be generated as a row on a web page or table.

    Whenever I get someone else's site to updated and the style sheet goes on forever... it would be good to have something like this to see what most of it does. Dreamweaver has a WYSIWYG style menu that does the same sort of thing, but it would be good to have a page laid out like swatches, labelled with the style name. When I get the time I'll try creating a rough and ready version to see if it works. Too busy now hence the request.
