Indicating tag locations in the browser

P: n/a
I have a strong suspicion this is impossible, but: What if I wanted to
create a mode for displaying a web page, with tiny, superimposed flags
indicating the locations of each opening and closing inline and block tag,
without the flags themselves disturbing the layout of the page's content?
Can that be done by adding any combination of additional markup or CSS to
the page (a) in theory or (b) in any of today's browsers?

How about if minimal disturbance were acceptable, on the order of what you
get if you temporarily turn borders on for all your tables so you can see
your page's layout?

Popular 'web developer' plugins for Mozilla/Firebird can let you do this.
Not sure about not disturbing the content, though, but worth a look.

Perhaps Opera is what you have in mind?

View > Style > View structural elements

I'll take a look, thanks.

The "view structural elements" option is grayed out. Any idea why?

Have you selected View > Style > User mode?

Chose User Mode, then the options will be available. Then when you toggle
between User and Author mode (Ctrl-G is handy), whatever you set for User
mode will stick.

Or enable 'My style sheet' in Author mode (File > Preferences > page
style). This will give access to all user styles in author mode.

It wft in author mode. O 7.23/Win2k. Perhaps this should be moved to
an Opera group?
