Tag it:

YouCMSAndBlog WYSIWYG IDE is a free editor I have recently created. It aims to support Windows since this IDE was developed with Microsoft C#  and Linux based environment soon (Mono).

With this IDE, you can have interactive environment when designing your Joomla template. Easily inserting Joomla taglist by double clicking its supported list from the listbox on the left side of the IDE. You also can also modify existing taglist template by modifying joomla.tagllist.xml file, adding new tag, and so on.

It also mean is very easy for you to set up a new taglist template definition for other CMS or Blog template which currently not shipped together with the download. I will appreciate if you want to contribute back your new taglist template for other CMS or Blog taglist template by submitting it back to VivoCiti Download repository.
