This is a request for a full CSS editor. - Syntax Highlighting (hopefully enhance the plaintext editor to take a lexical spec as a parameter so it can be used for a HTML/XML source editor, bug #14526) - Syntax Checking (maybe share bug #6211 CSS checking facilities? also would be nice for source editor) - Easy way to get to the CSS Standard and a CSS Reference - Stylesheet Preview (either with a specific HTML/XML file, or even better, automatically generate content to try to demo the stylesheet)
Bug #17533 is about a simple CSS editor.
Summary: CSS Editor → [enhancement] CSS Editor
Target Milestone: M20
setting this out toward the end of the cycle.
I wrote in Bug 17533: Funny... It seems to me that Bug 17534 is a simple css editor (just some syntax checking and highlighting) while this bug is in fact a request for a full-fledged css editor (GUI only, no exposure of the code). I agree with you: "it would be nice if..." but I'm not sure we want to commit to that business even more. Closing as Later.
I don't know what "graphical" views of CSS are, but if it's supplied, it would be nice to consider it one view, and the css source another, like is being suggested for the page editor (bug #14526).
Pierre -- I put this out to M20, with other RFEs, so we have a designated time to thoroughly review the requests and determine if it is feasible and if we really want to accept the request.

I am closing this bug because (a) it's really too old (b) it covers more than one issue/RFE. I spun off bug 310449 and assigned it to Nadine St-Amand, a new Editor and Nvu peer. I will add her to the despot list shortly. FYI, I am also working on CSS syntax highlighting and Nadine will probably work on the CSS validator's integration when she has spare time.
