IMPORTANT: Customizer and Skin Machine may or may not function properly with Internet Explorer (even the latest version if IE) because IE does not adhere to W3C standards, which are required for some of the advanced features of these specialized tools.

Source Code Editor

Eliminate the potential for breaking the code. -- use a Source Code Editor -- otherwise, code can get re-formatted or altered, which can break the code.
