Summary: Make View Source not suck. → Make View Source not suck (view source meta bug)
Having line numbers by the side of the View source window would be great. I didn't even know that the line number appears in the status bar until now, when I started to read already existing bugs. Another feature that would be great would be that one clicks at the start of an element (for example on **<div** class="...) the ending </div> or /> would be highlighted.
