HTML/site debugging tools

Composer's source view is helpful in debugging HTML.  Also helpful is the DOM view in the status bar at the bottom of the window: watch it change as you click on parts of the document.  Clicking on a particular item in the status bar DOM view will select it.

DOM Inspector: a separate window, which shows the DOM (Document Object Model) as a tree and allows selecting items and getting information about them.

"Venkman" javascript debugger: works just like a C++ debugger from an IDE, but it works on live javascript in your document.  It can be a huge help in debugging JS pages.
