    nested table coloration in code view

      Is there a way to modify the Code View window to display a different coloration for nested table tags... or nested CFIF statements in ColdFusion?

      As it is now, when you have a nested table with a gazillion rows and columns and then another table within those... apart from indenting (which DW doesn't do effectively) you have to literally look for the open and close tags like "where's waldo" and it is a frustration when debugging code.

      Any ideas?

          There is no built in function to do this.

            I would avoid layouts with a "gazillion rows and columns and then
            another table within those". Really!

            Try reformatting the source on your page to fix up your indenting:

            Commands > Apply Source Formatting

            Maybe you could place your nested table in a SSI to help organize your page.

            Hope this helps,
