    "on-the-fly" code change in Internet Explorer

    Here's what I mean: I can debug CSS right from the browser in FF using the CSS editor in the Web Developer plug in. I've found a great plug in for Safari that will let you alter the HTML on a site and preview the changes.

    Is there any sort of extension/plugin/program that will let me do something similar with IE?

    Isn't there a web developer toolbar clone recently released by the IE team which does just that? http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    That looks interesting. I'm using VPC on a Mac, for all I know this beta will kill everything on it () but I'll give it a shot.

    Honestly, the main reason I'd to have something like this is to help a little more with all the IE questions in the HTML/CSS forum. On a Mac it's hard to do that…what techniques do you guys use to test code posted here?

    I usually have DW open. I will open the page in FF, use the edit css extension, then if its an html problem and I don't feel like importing into DW I will use codeetch which is a FF extension that has a code and design view. Its pretty handy. If I need to debug an IE problem, I'll copy the source code paste it in a dw document, put in the appropiate base href save it debug it.
