    I have been changing the CSS in the child themes but then later on will come across a problem and wish I knew what lines I had changed.  I have even gone to the trouble of putting the original and my version in a Word doc and comparing the two.  I would like to find a way to make it easier to remember what I have changed.  How do you do it?  I can only think of two options:  Comment out the changes or make all the changes at the end of the style sheet to override the original.  Any other options?

    You can use DiffChecker or NotePad++ with the Compare Plugin (Windows) or many other editors for Mac.

    I use Notepad++ and I noticed when I comment out – they are excluded in Firefox and Chrome, but in Internet Explorer – the commented lines will show up.

    Internet Explorer. Enough said. Is there anything else?
