good on you, Keith, your learning style and communication is inspirational

Great diagram on page 2 explaining the div structure

Fascinating how you went about selecting the colours

Impressed that you checked against so many different browsers

I use HTML-Kit too but have found that it doesn't render correctly in it's
Preview screen, I need to edit in HTML-Kit but load in the browser - I still
like the editing capabilities for both XHTML and CSS provided by HTML-Kit
but their poor Preview is an annoyance

is a very useful css cheat sheet

I think css is both artistic and also would get students engaged in some of
the fiddly things required for programming - as well as being the modern and
"correct" way of doing web pages - disability access and all that - thanks
for getting me interested in it again - I hope others follow your example
and give it a go - as you say, you do have to do it to get it

I've done some further css upgrades on my intro page here but it still needs
more work
