Is this ever good – Xylescope is similar to aardvark, the mouseover DOM inspector and the mozilla web developer’s extension, in that it allows you to explore the structure of an html document and the CSS that’s being applied to every element, including the best visualization of the parent-child relationship I’ve yet seen. The only caveats are that it costs money as compared to these other free tools (but only $15, it’s cheap), it can’t perform direct transformations in the way that aardvark and the web developer’s extension can, and you really need some serious screen real estate to take full advantage of it. Even so, anyone doing web development on the mac should check this out.
