    Html <div></div> checker?
    ANy tool available that will evaluate your webpage to compare the <div>'s with the </div>'s? I seem to have a <div> out of place that IE thinks is the end of the world and FF has no problem with. Go figure.

    Fire up Safari, laod the problem page, then right click anywhere in the window and then select "inspect element" from the menu that appears.

    It will show you the HTML and highlight any problems it has found.

    Other options available then include checking load times of every file requested, and what their contents are.

    Very handy for troubleshooting.

    Did you leave out a step? That doesn't work for me.

    @john FireFox has some great developer plugins, he may be talking about one of them, take a look through the FF plugin library

    No I'm talking about Safari 4.

    It has element inspection and other handy stuff built in.

    At lease on the Mac it does. Maybe the windows version doesn't?

    Yes it doesn't appear to be on the windows version. Like AdZaz says FireFox has great web developer tools. Firebug is the one that I use most.

    @drewbert, sorry about that I saw "Fire" at the beginning of your post and must have made the connection to FF, I do not have a mac yet and have not tried safari so cant test...

    @SeymourButts, took me a while to figure out your photo, but I finally remembered, and guess what?

    I got a fever and the only ion is more cowbell.

    If you are using Dreamweaver, it has some very good tools in the code section. When you open the code in Dreamweaver, to the left on that window are icons for different things to do with the code. There is one icon that looks like this"<>" with a cursor between the greater than and smaller than sign called "Select Parent Tag". The way to use it is to click inside one of the tags, then click this icon. When you click it, it will select the whole block from the start to the closing tag.

    The good thing about this is that it works for any HTML tag, not just for the <div> tag. Hope this helps.
