Below are a few of the improvements I would like to see in a future version of the CSS editor:

1. Image thumbnail view similar to Firebug - if I hover on top of an {background-image: url('MyImage.png/gif/jpg'); then I would like to see the image as a thumbnail. 

2. color view similar to Firebug - if I hover on top of an {background-color: #FF0000; then I would like to see the color corresponding to the value as a thumbnail. 

3. file browser: better detection of what (if any) image files I have in my project, so I don't have to write the filename of the image myself in for example: {background-image (it is at this point the editor should start to look for any image files in my project).

4. ability to choose a seperate color for curly brackets 

5. ability to choose a color for values ie. #FF0000 - the # could be blue and FF0000 could be red. 

6. ability to enable/disable shorthand writing, so the editor would automatically insert a semi-colon after a parameter.

7. ability to automatically have curly brackets {} inserted after #myID or .MyClass - It would be nice if this feature could be easily turned on/off at the top of the workspace 

8. a "stop-sign" feature like in Firebug to comment out a line or lines.
