    Never the less, i wasn't talking about a tool to host sites. Pete was inquiring about tools to help make styling and modifying css/html more efficient.

    As he mentioned in the first post, he wants a way to see the website update as soon as you change a bit of css - instead of having to refresh the page each time. This is a live update.

    Visual Studio has built in CSS pre-proccessing, allowing you to create efficient non repetitive embedded style sheets.

    it also has intellisense built in for javascript, and allows web code to be debugged and stepped through.

    Don't be so defensive.
    This is one of the reasons i prefer to write web pages in ASP.NET. Visual Studio provides great tools now for web development. It even has a design page where you can drag and drop HTML elements etc. I wasn't aware that you could use VS for PHP pages though?

    And the web essentials is a great package.

    You learn something every day.
    I've not touched PHP in years. Doubt I ever will touch it again (I'm a .NET fanboy now), but it's always good to know whats available.
