DOM-tree Viewer For Mozilla

Sunday September 19th, 1999

Roland Mainz writes in with an interesting bit of news for people interested in getting a view of how their page is organized via the DOM. Roland writes:

"We have a new feature in Mozilla, which beats IE5 (again):

- IE5 has a tree-view for XML documents
- Mozilla now has a DOM-tree viewer (XML, HTML etc.)

Available from the menu item 'Debug | DOM Viewer'.

Take a look at Bug 11369 for details ! This rocks !"

I'm not sure if this is available in the latest nightly builds, or if you have to build a debug build to see it.

#6 Not as good as IE 5

I find IE5.0's full-screen syntax-colored XML source view with collapsable tags much more pleasing to the eye.

When using the Mozilla DOM viewer, I can't see attributes unless I expand nodes, newlines show up as garbage characters, etc.

With Microsoft's viewer, you get the benefit of seeing the XML nicely indented in it's source view, but also syntax colored to be very readable, plus it is collapsable like a tree.

Can the syntax coloring/indented source view style be implementedin Mozilla?
