CSS Treehouse Club: CSS My First Web Page Text Editors and External Style Sheets

In CSS when you hover your cursor over a color name or number, it shows the color, mine does not. Should it?

Is there a setting for that?

Hey Kevin. Welcome to Treehouse!

I don't believe there is an actual setting for that. It will depend on your text editor. Workspaces used to have this feature (I think), but have noticed that it doesn't anymore. It's was a nice feature... but...


From what I remember it had worked in chrome but not firefox.

You're right Jason Anello. (My first comment I accidentally deleted).

I tried in Firefox and it doesn't work, but in Chrome it does. Thanks. :)

I didn't think that would be something that is browser specific?

I think that since workspaces runs in the browser then anything that it does ultimately has to be accomplished with some combination of html/css/js

It doesn't seem like firefox is incapable of having this feature.

I haven't looked into it but my guess would be that some part of the js that is used for that feature is unsupported in firefox and a workaround was never implemented.
