    That's a good question I'm not sure. You should go ahead and start a new thread about that and I'm sure you'll find your answer.

    Just use Opera... check out the "view" menu.

    View -> style -> user mode strips all CSS from the page.

    Under style there are a bunch of stylesheet overrides that try to turn the page into accessible by font size, color sets, etc, etc... there's like 20 different style overrides you can apply.... and some ones that are useful for web development like "outline", "block structure", "class and ID", etc, etc...

    Much of that functionality can also be added to FF via the Web Developer Toolbar... has a nice "disable" menu option.

    Sorry, I know this is off-topic, but thanks. Tried it with this: http://www.commondreams.org/view/2011/07/20-3 and it worked fairly well. I see there's a way of putting your own style sheet in as well... looks promising... I use WebDev toolbar in FF, but find that neither that, nor AdBlock, nor NoScript are fully page by page customisable... I know I'm fussy but if someone put their mind to a nice little (fully customisable) FF add-on with a few easily reachable select buttons on the add-on bar (imgs on/off etc.), I'd punt it to the whole wide world. Go Johnnie Marbles.

So unless you're building a site designed to be used by clients in China, India, or Saudi Arabia, I would just stick the Microsoft "upgrade your browser" or comparable warning on your pages and try to forget IE6 exists
    I guess I'm more aware of it because one of my clients has IE6 on her PC, while the machine I work on when I'm there has IE7. It makes me realize IT departments can be slow and inconsistent with upgrades.

    I'm still considering my options for previewing in PC browsers on the Mac and found an app called Crossover. Has anyone tried it? All I'd use it for is browser testing.

What a relief. From the pared down !doctype to the specific tags, it makes page layout fun again. And CSS, well there's a whole nother swingin' monkey... I got bit two year ago and I'll never look back... I now understand why 'Code is Poetry' is pasted up all over the web - it truly is! And trust me, I wasn't even a geek ') I was a cabinet-maker for 18 years 'til I broke my back and discovered my inner geek! What fun it is. One day the web will be what what it's supposed to be... fast and light. Sleek if you will. WYSIWYG bogs the code down and pulls the whole thing back into the '90's... And what a bummer they were. CSS is fairly easy to learn, but it'll take you a lifetime to master, which is okay by me, coz I'm having so much fun doing it. I'm going for a ride on my bicycle now. Enjoy ')
    Thanks for the encouragement!

    Hey LauraFig, download a copy of Firefox Portable onto a flashdrive (or Firefox5 for that matter - works with Firebug etc.) and away goes your little IE problem. Then you can fiendishly install FF5 onto her machine/s, replace the shortcuts and bingo! silent revolution... ') Viva HTML5, Viva!

    I will give you a list of programs I use, and why I use them.

    Espresso:
    Pros:
    -Running a great dark theme (I'm coding better with dark themes really)
    -Code Navigator(Great for large files)
    -Quick Publish(A small buildin FTP for your projects)
    -Running Preview
    -Great PHP Support
    Cons:
    -Lacking some HTML5 and CSS3 features
    -Needs a better FTP

    Coda:
    Pros:
    -Dark Theme
    -Great Snippets support
    -Built-in server explorer and FTP
    -'Sites' to keep track of different sites both Local and remote
    -Great HTML5, CSS3(vendor-prefix too), and PHP Support
    -Built-in references
    -'Share' edit code live and simultaneously with a co-worker in the next cube or across the globe. Share documents via Bonjour, and track changes.
    Cons:
    -Lacking Javascript support
    -Could use better code navigator

    Textmate:
    Pros:
    -With Sparkup coding is neat!
    -Lots of built-in completed code. etc. Write input press tab, press 2, and you will get
    Code HTML4Strict:
    <label for=""></label><input type="text/submit/hidden/button" name="" value="" id="">
    -Just pro and fast
    Cons:
    -Code hinting would be great
    -Managing multiple files isn't always easy

    Mainly I use Espresso and Coda, and Textmate for fast coding (Zen Coding)

    Together with my editors I use a bunch of apps to speed up my development.
    Less:
    -Writing CSS using Less, for fast vendor-prefixes, using some custom built functions to etc. make multiple borders.

    Nettuts+ Builder:
    -Optimizing my site a little before publishing.

    Snippets:
    -Snippets, like css reset, .htaccess gzip, expires, ETags and so on.

    Structurer Pro:
    -Building my structure for my site, download & installing wordpress with a click - Lots of features too.

    There is apps like Textexpander I use too, etc. for basic HTML structure, css comments, gzip code for PHP resetting headings and so on.

    You should look on the apps, when you get a better coder, and understand the basics more, and really wanna speed up you development, and still know what that is going on.. Those apps can be recommended!

    Good luck and wish you the best coding-skills

    i must say that i went back to dreamweaver after trying a few others - using code view.

    but i want to thank some of the posters for their suggestions: some of the software mentioned here i had never heard before.

    so... thanks.
    you rock!

    will let you know how it goes.
    cheers
