TopStyle helps you create cross-browser style sheets by alerting you of problems as you work. What's more, its powerful style checker validates against multiple CSS implementations, alerting you not only to invalid entries in your style sheets, but also to bugs in popular browsers that may affect their display.

The publisher and homepage for this application are incorrect. TopStyle was aquired by Stefan van As in 2008 as noted here: http://nick.typepad.com/...12/ann-topstyle-ac.html
In theory the new website is http://www.topstyle4.com but I have tons of issues getting to it (may be a work proxy issue).
I haven't actually tried the latest version so I'm giving it an arbitrary rating of 4, feel free to ignore.

Combine the topstyle lite version(css) with PSPad(xhtml),Inkscape(vector graphics), and Gimp(raster graphics) -> you have a power combination for web development.

Undoubtedly the best CSS editor.
Reviewing 3.11 Beta 1 (Aug 5, 2004)
Topstyle was and still is (one of) the most powerfull CSS editor around. I have used this program for several years now and must say I never came across a better program for creating, managing and correcting stylesheets.
And the light html editor available since 3.? is a nice extra to the complete program. Now you don't need any other editor for creating your websites.
I think it is a wise decission to clean up Topstyle in this new version. All the backward compatibility options are kinda useless when you really want to use stylesheets. The only thing missing to my opinion is an alternative inline preview. IE is extremely out of date when it comes to checking and creating great stylesheets. I know there is a (very hard) way to get Gecko to run inside Topstyle, but I think this should be a default option. Or include the Opera runtime.
Reviewing 3.0 Release Candidate 1 (Jun 19, 2002)
The best just got better! Nick has added (X)HTML capabilities so that TopStyle could edit in-line style blocks and styles in the of the HTML. This has meant that the program now doubles as an HTML editor! There are many other improvements as well.
