I think you would find it best to work in either Firefox with the
Firebug[1] and Web Developer[2] extensions, or Google Chrome with its
developer tools. There you could easily have two tabs open and viewing
what actually goes to the browser, with good developer inspection tools.
If you have two screens, all the better because you can have the whole
page in view on one screen whilst inspecting elements, CSS and scripts
on the other screen.

Opera has reasonable developer tools too, called Dragonfly[3], but I've
always found it a little clunky compared to Firebug... but it does let
you remote-debug Opera Mobile :)
