    "Good (closer to 3.5 stars), but still needs some work"

    December 21, 2011  |   By major-john


    Very good with C++, but really could be improved as a HTML editor


    1) No color palette for CSS that I could see. For CSS, it does present a single list of colors, but that is far-short of a color palette.

    2) <!-- #bbinclude "name" --><!-- end bbinclude --> really needs some work in that the file "name" contents are always presented via the "Update" tool. If "name" is super big, I assure you that is super-annoying, big-time. PageSpinner's <!-- ps_include="name" --> doesn't show the contents of "name". Could not BBEdit simply add a preference to show or not show with the tool "Update"?

    of course there's a CSS colour palette, it's the apple colour palette and everything it comes with... not sure how it could be any better.
