Hi all,
CSS eXplorer 2.0.3 was created for WIN XP, therefore win 7 or
win vista users 
will have problems use it on win 7 or win vista.

Currently our best solution for this is to use XP Mode
(Mode lets you run older Windows XP software right on your Windows 7 desktop )


CSS eXplorer is a CSS and HTML plug-in for Notepad++
It allows easy navigation and edit of CSS files with Notepad++.


  1. TreeView: Allows easy navigation in CSS file.

  2. Validation Service: Check errors in CSS file, and provide detailed report.

  3. Web Page Preview: Test your work on CSS file immediately via HTML Web Page Preview Window.

  4. CSS Editor:  Add new parameters and design options to CSS file quickly and easily (support CSS 2.0 defines). 
                                   4 Design sections:

                                   1. Text – Add text design to the CSS file.
                                   2. Display – Add background, and choose position.
                                   3. Border – Add Border Style and Width.
                                   4. Dimension – Set Padding and Margin.
