I may be wrong here, but isn’t giving support the authors prerogative?
For windows id recommend Notepad++ or jEdit.
And for mac’s id suggest Coda or Espresso
Although, just looking at InType, looks very promising
Really don’t see the point in this, I’d presume most people who visit this site will already open items in new tabs. Its only 1 click/2 clicks to make it happen, not worth the extra JS load time to accomplish this.
There is a firefox plugin called Dust Me selectors which does exactly what your asking for
I think you should still support IE6 in a way that the site is usable, rather than having fancy shadows/sliders/jquery to make it look pretty.
Making the all the headings etc nice, everything is aligned properly etc etc.
So would a template be approved if it was quite a fancy site with slider, hover effects, cufon etc but these things didn’t appear in IE6 ? But it was still usable and functional?
I go to flickr, screenalicious.com, bestwebgallery.com and lots of other gallery sites
The easiet and most simple cms to make a theme for is by far Textpattern.
The only gripe i have about it is the backend of TXP could be much better, so if the TXP dev’s upgraded the back end with a make over, it would be much more appealing to use than it is at the moment.
