I was shown a cool program for a mac call Xyle Scope.http://www.culturedcode.com/xyle/
It takes a webpage and shows you ur CSS.  Sure other firefox plugins do that too but this one actually shows you the CSS rule that is in effect.

Unfortunately they only make it for Mac. Anyone seen a similar program for Windows? PLEASE help me. Thanks

Hmmm, if you just use the developer toolbar in firefox and select 'View Style information' from the 'CSS' menu, you can click on any element in the page and get all the current style information plus what line in which css files caused that particular style-property. This would work on windows just fine unles:

Now I have not bothered to test xyle, but that's because I didn't think xyle could offer anything beyond what I just described :) Please let me know if it does, I happily own a mac so I can't be bothered that it doesn't work in windows!!!

Hope this helps,

Yea that helps a bunch.  I didn't know that option was avaible through Firefox dev tools.  I just recently started to use the CSS Editor but haven't had the time to play around with it much.  

Thanks for the suggestion and it's exactly what I needed.  Not as robust as Xyle but works none the less.

Well, if I may add another suggestion, I recommend installing FireBug. Together with the Web Developer extension I don't know what else I could add to FireFox to make it better for my developement :)
