Show Classes and IDs bookmarklet - loads a stylesheet that uses (non-IE-compatible) css attribute selector types and the :before pseudo type to add little coloured labels to each page element, indicating the class or id. [via webgraphics]

window.content.document is null or not an object -> it indeed doesn't work in IE (had to test :-))

The main reason it won't work is that IE doesn't understand element[attr=""] and :before css rules. See the stylesheet:

It could possibly be made to work in IE by writing a loop that checks all the elements for id and class.
