Today at Innoveo Solutions I work on CSS and XHTML for our Skye® product.

I am using JetBrains IntelliJ 9 since a couple of weeks now and I enjoy it very much.

I am always searching for tools which make me more productive in my daily work. IntelliJ 9 is such a tool. And today I have used a feature that helped me a lot.
