    Exclamation How do I alter the css using the IE developers toolbar. Sorted: Can't be done!

    Apparently it is not possible to modify the css with this add-on to IE7.

    Hello Frank,
    I use the IE7 developers toolbar a lot because the DOM inspector shows a different view than FF's toolbar does. The IE one though, doesn't edit CSS or markup.
    If you have FireFox, get Web Developer 1.1.4. It will let you edit both CSS and markup.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    Changing background I think you've been there before.

    This post has a site which is different in FFox and IE7. I have been trying to help but CSVista has let me down with this one. As my knowledge of CSS is very rudimentary, I wanted to use IE7's web dev program to alter the css to see if I could do any better.

    According to CSSVista, I had sorted it out, but it was not so. Well, If at first you don't succeed, try, try ....It's very trying. It seemed such a simple problem.

    Back to the drawing board.
