Quick Tag Editor

The Quick Tag Editor dialog box enables you to quickly insert HTML, edit existing tags, or wrap a set of tags around another tag or set of tags while working in either the Design view or Code view of a web page. In addition, a subset of IntelliSense features are available in the Quick Tag Editor. For example, if you type all or part of a tag, property, or value, IntelliSense can display a pop-up list of options that you can select from. For more information, see Use IntelliSense.
