Xyle scope is an elegant analysis tool for everyone interested in Web standards. It's like surfing the Web with an X-ray view. Using Xyle scope you will deepen your understanding of XHTML and CSS, find out how your peers did it, and see your own work with fresh eyes.

The synchronized views of Xyle scope let you easily focus on specific parts of the HTML or CSS sources, view the CSS Cascade and formatting box of HTML elements, and change CSS values in third party sites.

What's New

Version 1.2.4: Corrected a Leopard-only bug in version 1.2.2. Web pages that specified font sizes relative to the user agent's default font size were rendered incorrectly. The default font size of Xyle scope was inadvertently set to a smaller size than what is customary for Web browsers

An absolute must have, but realize that it is not a competitor of CSSedit or any other CSS writing app. This is meant for the polishing stage of web design. It helps with CSS rules, drilling down to what line of code is causing the problems and experimentation.

I do a lot of redesign, so I am not worried about writing CSS from the ground up. I usually have to modify someone else's work. And since all programmers don't code in the same fashion, it can take hours of work to figure out how some people layout the styles. Xyle scope gets right down to the lines of code that I need to modify to change HTML elements, easily, effectively and efficiently.

I use this app every damn day!

Stick in a fork in it. With CSSEdit around, Xle scope is done.

CSSEdit is discontinued. Rolled into the all-in-one Espresso. (*sigh* Why....?)

No web developer should leave home without it. If this isn't worth like 15 minutes of your salary then nothing is!!!

I had just installed version 1.1.7, and it is working fine now! (Fixed the problem with the recent Apple security update!)

Am a happy user again! :)

Not working under Tiger OS 10.4.5.

Was working fine before, but it broke after I installed the latest security update from Apple.

Truly phenomenal. While there have been ways to kluge together similar info, nothing has ever put it all together so quickly and easily. A very well thought-out and elegant interface, better than on many apps costing several times as much. This is the kind of development I love to see on the Mac! I registered mine already -- these folks deserve or support.

This is a useful app if you have to do any work with CSS. While there are some tools in Safari and Firefox that can provide similar information, as well as some bookmarklet javascript/css hacks, this is the best implementation I've seen.

I registered it after about 10 minutes of use.
