Found this when searching through the CSS section of the W3C site.

Its freeware, and it gets the job done in an easy to understand way.

Although German in origin, the menus are in English - well worth a tryout IMHO.

4eyes thanks for the link to style assistant. I am just starting to play around with css, so this caught my eye. I downloaded it, and so far so good. Your right, it is pretty easy to understand.

But their website sucks. Take a look with MSIE at 800x600 -- the page is wider than the screen, which is bad enough, but (and here's the clever bit) there's no horizontal scrollbar. I have never had to drag-scroll sideways before.

Anyone know how they did that? If it's in their stylesheet, I will probably not be downloading the editor.

I reckon this is the problem:

Font-Family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif;
Font-Size: 100%;
Color: #FFFFFF;
Background-Color: #00009C;
Margin: 0px;
Overflow-y: auto;

Not sure why it would be a problem but must be it as there is little else in their that might cause it. That overflow needn't be there at all so I suspect it's the problem..

I'd say from looking at the html and css on their site that this may be more trouble than it's worth. Tables layout, huge amount of unneeded css etc

Nice find though - certainly interesting!
