Identifying Formatting Errors with Expression Web

One of the more interesting aspects of Expression Web is its ability to help debug CSS errors. I'm in a talk on Designing with Expression Web and the story is about how to use Expression Web to identify problems in a web page. The web page is loaded and the problematic element is selected. One of the windows is a rules summary pane that includes all of the formatting rules that apply to the selected item, in the order in which they occur.

So the process of identifying the problem is finding the particular rule that actually causes the unexpected formatting. And having tried to suss this out on my own in the past, I can greatly appreciate the benefits of having such a tool available.
