Very funny.

First off, anything generated by VS.net 2k5 not only validates XHTML 1.0, but is totally cross browser. I have yet to have an issue with a built in ASP control rendering significantly different in firefox and ie. So any implications on poor standard support is completely unfounded, the code generation is on par with dreamweaver, and far better then anything else I have seen.

Granted, javascript intellisense isnt exactly revolutionary. However, look at the way it handles css here http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/07/25/vs-2008-web-desig..., and tell me what other environment comes even close?

Actually, while it might not be your cup of tea, Netbeans 6 (at rc1 and out at the end of the month) has a very nice interface to CSS. Bet you haven't tried NB6.

I'd be inclined to say StyleMaster has been doing that for years, but obviously StyleMaster isn't an HTML editor, solely CSS. Anyone looking for a powerful CSS editor though that develops with tools other than VS.net, or develops on OS X, should probably check it out.

N.B. I bought the 4.x version at least a year or two ago*, and it seems I'm still up to date (free upgrades), though whether they're planning a new major release or not anytime soon I don't know.

Off-topic, but the logo was designed by Jon Hicks of Firefox/Thunderbird/Miro fame :-)
