This page brings together a collection of the tools I've written for figuring out why a page isn't doing what it should. Reveal table structures and nesting, zoom in and out, snapshot the page's DOM for dHTML work, debug forms and so on.
The headings for each of the bookmarklet blurbs are the bookmarklets. Click on them to test, right-click and bookmark, drag & drop, copy shortcut.. whatever. But check the compatability notes first. If your current browser isn't tested or supported who knows what will happen. You can also copy the bookmarklet from the text field with each, create a new bookmark/favourite and paste it in as the URL.
My collection here is getting pretty dated. Here's a couple links to resources out there.
Or course, if you use Mozilla or Firefox, you really should be looking instead at Extensions for your browser:
I recommend especially the "Web Developer" extension which adds a whole toolbar of indespensible goodies.
For windows IE, you'll have much more luck searching for favelets. They like to call them that.
