TopStyle 4

September 12, 2009

I’ve covered a number of different tools for helping you build a Web page. Today I’ll cover yet another in TopStyle 4. It is a code-based editor with a number of features that assist you in writing good clean code. To me, the power of TopStyle is not for working with Web pages, but in creating and modifying Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

CSS files can control all formatting on a Web site. To me the best case scenario is to link the pages of a site to a separate CSS file. If you change the CSS file, the look of all pages linked to that CSS style sheet will change. This becomes even more important if a site has a large number of pages. There is a free trial you can download and the full version can be purchased for a reasonable price.

This is a product that I have used for years mostly for editing CSS files, though I will occasionally edit a Web page with it. The only reason I don’t use it as often for editing Web pages is that I prefer other products. With the new TopStyle 4, I might give it another look for editing Web pages.
