Upgrade Email Source Code view (Rows & Colors)

The WCA Email editor source code view is well below industry standard.  Source code should have row numbers and be color coded to distinguish text vs. style vs. code.

How will this idea be used?

This will save time and reduce errors when editing source code for any message. I imagine that nearly every user enters the email source code at some point.

    Agree! I bring my HTML into Dreamweaver so I can read the code easier--ideally would like to stay within WCA for edits.

    Yes this is most desirable as we do not edit creatives in design mode due to it messing up the dynamic rules.

    Agreed! My team has to code everything outside of WCA (tools like Litmus builder) and constantly copy & paste code back & forth.

    Please! The comment about the Brackets editor is spot on.

    Please! See like Brackets editor row numbers, colour coded, appropriately indented, right click element in preview to go to section of code etc. Also the ability to snapshot code and go back to earlier revision without having to save multiple template versions would be great.
