    I’m getting the hang of this css stuff, but I need to have a copy of my site’s html for editing purposes. (It helps to see where my stylesheets correspond to my site’s content). A direct response is much appreciated. 8)

    The blog I need help with is non-believers.com.

    You cannot access to edit the HTML or PHP underlying your theme and edit it.

    Stylesheet for the Untitled theme here https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/untitled/style.css

    You can view source, or use an HTML DOM Inspector (if you use Chrome, right click on anything on the page, then click Inspect Element) to aid you in figuring out what needs to be styled.

    I think the add in for Firefox is Firebug

    The source for the Themes is also public – sorry don’t remember the link – but I do remember looking at some php files some time back for a Theme here

    There’s an SVN repository of all of the free themes on WordPress.com. It’s at:

    https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com

    You can view all of the files there (even through a web browser). In this case (editing custom CSS for a wp.com site), it’s not as helpful as actually inspecting the rendered HTML in a browser though.
