Related documents view (HTML)

Related document view in Blend for Visual Studio displays documents that are related to the document currently displayed on the design surface. For example, when an HTML document is open and displayed on the design surface, the CSS document associated with it is displayed in the related document view. If you have more than one CSS file associated with an HTML document, the related document view will automatically update to display the most recent CSS file to which you added a style.
