Astyle: A Free Visual CSS Editor

I know everyone is wild about CSS. :) If you DO want to make it easier though, give Astyle a try.

Grouped view of properties and selectors
Automatic selection and grouping of CSS selectors from a markup language document

I hadn't heard of this one before. It looks good. I'm going to give it a try.

I have downloaded and installed it on my laptop, but have not yet used it. Feel free to PM me in a week or so if I haven't posted a reply to this thread by then.

I just tried this, and I have to say, its not the easiest thing to use. I wouldnt recommend it.

- no, me neither. These "A" people are not pegagogic teachers; even their screenshots only made me wonder what CSS is all about. But of course, if you already know how to write CSS it may be a different story.

But if you know CSS, it isn't any harder than using the program (In fact, I find it easier than the program).  The only thing this might help with is preventing stupid typos from what I could gather.

AStyle is designed for experts. New users (such as myself) will probably be confused by the interface and the general program.

In Short: New User? Find a more user-friendly program. Expert? Try it out, it may suit you.
