These are the invisible elements whose markers you can show or hide:
Named Anchors displays an icon that marks the location of each named anchor (
a name = "") in the document.
Comments displays an icon that marks the location of HTML comments. Select the icon to see the comment in the Property inspector.
Line Breaks displays an icon that marks the location of each line break (
BR). This option is deselected by default.
Client-Side Image Maps displays an icon marking the location of each client-side image map in the document.
Embedded Styles displays an icon showing the location of CSS styles embedded in the body section of the document. If CSS styles are placed in the head section of a document, they do not appear in the Document window.
Hidden Form Fields displays an icon that marks the location of form fields that have the

Form Delimiter displays a border around a form so you can see where to insert form elements. The border shows the extent of the
form tag, so any form elements inside that border are properly enclosed in
Anchor Points for Layers displays an icon that marks the location of code defining a layer. The layer itself can be anywhere on the page. (Layers are not invisible elements; only the code defining the layer is invisible.) Select the icon to select the layer; you can then see the contents of the layer even if the layer is marked as hidden.
Anchor Points for Aligned Elements displays an icon showing the location of HTML code for elements that accept the
align attribute. These include images, tables, ActiveX objects, plug-ins, and applets. In some cases, the code for the element may be separated from the visible object.
Visual Server Markup Tags and NonVisual Server Markup Tags display the location of server markup tags (such as Active Server Pages tags and ColdFusion tags) whose content cannot be displayed in the Document window.
