Setting Code Color Preferences

You can use the Code Coloring section of the Preferences dialog box to specify colors for general categories of tags and code elements, such as HTML Image or style tags, Library items, or CSS properties. For a selected tag or code element, you can specify the text color, background color, and any formatting (Bold, Italic, or Underline) you want to make it easier to work with your code. In Code view and Live Code view (New!), you can specify different colors for backgrounds and code to make it easier to read.
