More about TopStyle

Since we added this software to our catalog in 2005, it has obtained 136,419 downloads, and last week it achieved 25 installations.

Its current version is 3.10 and was updated on 6/9/2006. It's available for users with the operating system Windows 95 and former versions, and you can get it only in English.

TopStyle is a light software that needs less storage space than many programs in the section Development software. It's a software very heavily used in many countries such as India, United Kingdom, and Finland.

TopStyle Lite is a free version of TopStyle that contains an extremely small subset of the features found in the Pro version of TopStyle. Most importantly, TopStyle Lite is strictly a simple CSS editor, whereas TopStyle Pro is a full-blown XHTML, HTML and CSS editor. However, if all you want is a very basic CSS editor, TopStyle Lite will serve you very well.

TopStyle Lite is a simplified version of its bigger brother, TopStyle. Although it provides a smaller selection of features, it's still a powerful style sheet editor that enables you to confidently and accurately create cascading style sheets, which can then be implemented into your website.

The burden of producing style sheets that are cross-browser compatible is eased by the inclusion of a multi-browser style checker and validator. This not only alerts you to invalid entries in your style sheets, but will highlight any bugs in popular browsers that may affect the style sheets' display.

It can create a basic style sheet from an existing HTML file, and all you need to do is simply apply styles to all the relevant tags in this document. Properties can be altered using the drop-down menus, or through manual entry. Any property that isn't supported by the current CSS definition will be highlighted in red, enabling easy location of errors later on.

The interface is extremely adaptable, enabling you to preview the current style sheet from within the editor itself and locate elements within the style sheet easily and quickly. In fact, TopStyle Lite makes every aspect of CSS creation extremely easy. If you're an old hand at style sheets you'll be surprised at the time this package will save you. And if you're a novice you'll be grateful for its error reporting aspect.
