JavaScript Introduction to Programming Basics Writing Your Program

Need help with the navigation of duplicating html on Chrome and the use of "TextMate."

Can there be some info given on the use of Textmate and the connection with Chrome. Jim goes into the use of these applications but I had to figure out(which I haven't completely done) on how to duplicate his steps. I have downloaded Textmate...but it isn't exactly what I am seeing Jim use. Need help with better explanation of the basics of some of these new editors that are being introduced.

Sorry all. I still can't follow. Is there a step by step guide to follow along?

Since the video Jim posted, Chrome now makes it incredibly easy to copy nodes (markup) from an HTML page.

With the Chrome Dev Tools panel open (one of the easiest ways is to right click on the page and select inspect element), select copy as HTML form the mouse selection menu or use <kbd>Cmd</kbd>+<kbd>C</kbd> (Mac) or <kbd>Ctrl</kb>+<kbd>C</kbd> to copy specific sections of HTML you want to copy after clicking edit as HTML from the context menu provided if you right click on the parent node of what you want to copy.

As of today, the latest versions of Chrome Canary (nightly/beta versions of Chrome before they're released to mainstream users) have even easier ways of copying the HTML that'll be ported over to stable releases of Chrome soon.
