The main tool is a text-based search for
HTML elements, HTML attributes, CSS properties, CSS selectors,
and CSS at-rules.
The search happens live as you type, so usually
you'll only have to type one or two letters to get the results you want.
Detailed but succinct results.
Search results show in the center panel,
and have information about browser compatibility,
standards-compliance, and a brief summary of usage. There are
also links to further information on the SitePoint Reference web site.
Practical code examples.
Code examples open in the right-hand panel,
and are practical examples with summaries to show you
how an element, attribute or property can be used.
Code examples are syntax-highlighted, and are also editable and
easy to copy — simply click inside the code example to Select-All.
Right-click in the search results and you'll be given
options to show a code example for the selected item,
to view more information online,
and — for CSS properties and selectors —
to view a live demo online
(the live demos let you play
around with CSS in real-time, to see what things do).
Click the DOM tab in the left-hand panel and you can inspect the
DOM of any page — as a springboard to looking up information on
HTML elements and attributes.
Search for a selected element and attributes.
If you double-click on an element — or right click when it's
highlighted in orange — then you can perform a
selection search. This displays information
about the specified element,
along with all the attributes that are defined for it,
plus any other attributes that
are valid for it, and all the CSS properties and selectors that currently
apply to it (that may be specified or inherited).
Click the CSS tab to inspect the stylesheets associated with the DOM view page,
from which you can get information about CSS properties, selectors and at-rules.
In both the DOM and CSS views, you can right-click on any item
to get a context-menu with options to lookup that object,
to show a code example for it, or to
view more information online. CSS properties and
selectors also have an item to view the live demo.
