While in the Quick Tag Editor, you can access an attributes hint menu that lists all the valid attributes of the tag you are editing or inserting.

You can also disable the hints menu or adjust the delay before the menu pops up in the Quick Tag Editor.

To see a hints menu listing valid attributes for a tag, pause briefly while editing an attribute name in the Quick Tag Editor. A hints menu appears, listing all the valid attributes for the tag you’re editing.
