Please read the instructions if you don't know how to use these favelets.
- Convert abbreviations and acronyms using Acrobot
- Highlight some text on your web page (or perhaps some text that you are entering into a
<textarea>, for example a Blogger or MovableType post), then run this favelet - the highlighted text will be passed through the Acrobot, converting all your acronyms and abbreviations. Please note: this has been tested in IE5 and IE6 on Windows but does not always appear to work with
<textarea>s in Mozilla (although any other text highlighted on the page does work OK).

- Show and label divs with ids
- When designing a web page, you will often use
<div>tags to enable precise positioning using Cascading Style Sheets. This favelet highlights ALL
<div>tags with a red border and reveals the
idof that div.
- Show and label divs with classes
- Exactly as above, but this time only
<div>s that have a
classattribute are labelled.
- Alt attributes - show all
- Displays all images on the page, alongside their
altattributes - useful for checking that
altattributes match up with the image.
- Alt attributes - images missing
- Displays all images on the page that do not have any
altattributes - useful accessibility checking tool. Remember, an image used as decoration should ideally be set as a CSS background, but if the image must be an inline
img, use an empty

<th>tags or whether plain old
<td>s were used instead.
- Images list
- Displays a list of all images on the page, excluding invisible spacer pixels. Also shows the file size for each image alongside the image
- Links - titles and hrefs
- Shows all links on the page and the contents of the link (text and/or images). Also shows
titleattributes of each link (if present - very useful for assessing how accessible your links are.

<div>tags on the page with a 2-pixel red border.
- General page stats
- General page statistics, including when the page was last updated, what forms and stylesheets are linked, how many images, how many links and so on.
Form fields and values
- Displays all
formattributes, for every form on a page - useful debugging tool.
- Meta data
- Shows all
metatag data for the page (in case you are unable to view source, or source code is messy!)

- Lists page dependencies, including external script files (.js), external style sheets (.css) and images. Please note: this script is over the 508 character limit and may not work on all browsers.
- Show tables
- Dead simple - just places a solid black border around any
tablein the current document (but not cells within the table).
The small print: These favelets were originally written and tested using IE5/Windows 2000. They should work on most other browsers and platforms, but if they don't please let us know (and why they don't work, if you also know that!). Some may not work in IE6 (over 508 character limit).
Update: Some people have reported that favelets stop working after installing Windows XP Service Pack 2 - Can anyone confirm/deny this?
