That brings back GREAT memories. DBJ trained me to use the service. Have had many a battle with it. :p

I am still new to css, but the class I'm in right now has I working with it a lot. Actually, we are using CSS3, specifically. Some site's we've used are CSS3Generator.com, css3.me, and we've used w3schools a lot to practice making the codes. They also have css, and html5 codes on there, as well.

I tend to use WordPress on a lot of sites for clients as well as my own blog and for small tweaks I just use the built-in editor.

If I'm doing a site from scratch, I usually use a template I made a while back and then just edit it by hand in NetBeans. If I'm using jQueryUI, then I use the themeroller on there site to do the basic color changes and such, then edit by hand to tweak as needed while doing the site.

I like Chrome's 'Inspect Element' window. It's easy to type in various settings for any CSS element and try them out on the fly. I can walk through the javascript/jQuery scripts and see what is happening as the html is being rendered.

Great suggestion Weilrich. Am going to try that out. Although i'm pretty lazy when it gets to CSS. I like one that will fit everything without needing to search for special features.

I've just been looking at CSS3 Generator which is a Chrome (yeah, I know) add-on app. It seems to work pretty well. One thing I like is a box with the CSS code that updates in real time as you manipulate your elements on the screen. Although I almost always use separate style sheets it will also generate a basic html doc with the CSS included if you want.

Haven't spent much time with it so don't know how much, if any tweeking of results is involved but it might be worth a look. It's free and you should find it pretty easily searching the Chrome Web Store.
