I am a CSS newbie. Is there a tool that can help debug CSS styles applied to a web page.
How does one generally debug CSS and resolve issues when some elements on the page are not appearing as they should? For now, I have to painfully comment out CSS declarations one by one to understand how the styles are getting displayed.
Firefox there is a plug in module called Firebug. It is easy to install and very powerful. It is even better when combined with 'Web Developer' for Firefox.
Internet Explorer has a Developer Toolbar, which is not as good as Firebug but good enough to check things still work in IE. Additionally there is a tool called IE DOM inspector. There is also a version of Firebug for IE caled Firebug Lite.
Safari uses a tool called Web Inspector.
Opera has a built-in utility called Dragonfly.
