TopStyle Lite provides you with a simple CSS editing application that can help you create and modify style sheets. It only comprises a small set of features of TopStyle, a professional CSS, HTML and XHTML editor.
Especially designed for beginner users who only need basic CSS editing features, the application is very easy to use and the interface makes no difference. It is clean and well-organized, offering easy access to all the options.
One of the most important features of TopStyle Lite is its side-by-side preview function, which enables you to view the result as you go and validate the CSS syntax against multiple browsers. Unfortunately, only older browser versions are supported (Internet Explorer up to version 7, Firefox 2, Opera 9, Safari 2.0). The preview section automatically updates as you enter new classes and properties, in order to reflect the changes.
To ease your work, the application comes with automatic suggestion capabilities, which simplifies the entry of properties. Additionally, a list of predefined selectors is available, enabling you to easily add new HTML elements to the code. The output can be saved as CSS document or HTML file.
The 'Style Inspector' section displays all the properties of the selected active style definition, such as colors or fonts. Word wrap, auto-indentation, DreamWeaver and HomeSite integration, line numbering and customizable appearance are other advantages that this application brings you.
TopStyle Lite is designed solely for editing style sheets and does not provide support for HTML documents. Despite its disadvantages, it is a handy application worth considering if you want to create standards-compliant websites.
