CSS Editor & comment syntax

P: n/a
I am new to CSS. When we write the CSS for the position settings, do
we need to type it manually. Or it can be done by editor?

also, I want to make sure /* */ is the syntax to comment.

Please advise. Thanks!

I don't use an editor, I suppose it depends on what you use. Check the
documentation that came with the web authoring software you use to see for
sure.

And /* comment */ is correct.

Editor? As in WYSIWYG? Bad choice, since CSS in WYSIWYG editors is not great
right now. Anyway, it's not that hard to write these things. Something like
the following would work:

position: absolute;
top: 100px;
left: 100px;
also, I want to make sure /* */ is the syntax to comment.


/* This is a comment */

There are various editors. Here are a couple: Dreamweaver MX 2004, which has
concentrated on improving the support for CSS; and TopStyle, which appears to
be a pretty good CSS editor.

These are oriented to developing pages & styles in parallel. Put content into
pages, develop styles, link the 2 together, view & pre-view, etc.
