Rapid CSS 2014 is a powerful cascading style sheets editor that's packed with time-saving features.
The program gets you off to a speedy start with bundled templates helping create many CSS documents from scratch. There are also several HTML templates ("FAQ Page", "Feedback Form" and so on), various samples aimed at helping CSS beginners, and the option to add your own templates for WML, PHP, ASP and other documents.
If the templates don't provide what you need then there's always the Style Sheet Wizard. Choose your font, font size, various colours and other options, while a built-in preview window shows the results. Then click OK and Rapid CSS 2014 will generate the appropriate code for you.
You'll have to at least start more complex projects yourself, but still, there's plenty of assistance on offer here. Auto Complete pops up syntax reminders as you type, for example, helping you remember and write style property names. The CSS Inspector will add, remove and modify style properties for you. And the Code Library comes filled with frequently required code snippets, so you can quickly reuse them as necessary (and of course you can also add snippets of your own).
When the job seems to be done, the CSS Formatter and Beautifier can automatically reformat your code to make it easier to read. The CSS Checker and Validator will confirm that everything is correct (or tell you why it isn't), and you can then save files directly to an FTP, FTPS or SFTP server.
Please note, the trial version can only be launched 30 times, so be sure to make the most of each run.
