....Which is most of the point. With the DOM Inspector ONE can easily
notice unneeded containers and discern which style rules are being applied
to each element, in the event that something is being unexpectedly
inherited (or not).
There's another extension that integrates Tidy into source view, and for
me that's just as big a lifesaver (as it allows me to identify unclosed
elements that are b0rking my styles).
What DOM is meant for is to provide a structural representation of a
document, so that elements can be manipulated via scripting API's... but
its application to styling should be fairly obvious if you work much with
