Like probably thousands of other web professionals I owe a lot to Jeffrey Zeldman.
I remember spending hours sitting on a balcony in Tenerife, while Jane and her parents were out exploring the island and enjoying the sunshine, reading the first edition of his book Designing with Web Standards.
That book changed how I looked at the web and how I began to develop websites.
This is an excellent 40 minutes documentary, from Lynda.com, about Zeldman’s 20 years of “designing, organizing, and most of all sharing on the web”.
If you are interested in web development, you should watch it.
But as you can see from the screenshot above, the default view is rather dull: white background, uninspiring syntax highlighting. It’s a shame that you can’t match the Chrome developer tools code panel with my text editor of choice.
Well, it turns out you can! Chrome provides a “User StyleSheets” directory into what you can drop a Custom.css file.
