Greetings. My comment requires neither link(Drunk nor code.

I found this site after having significant difficult finding CSS I could use. I know what I want but its not available in code to C&P so I can learn to use it. The instructions are confusing,on every site I've tried, despite having a college degree. I had hoped my frustrated ended here.

Unfortunately, it doesn't.

I looked over the forum and it said to use the search function and FAQ prior to posting questions. The Search option found nothing. I have yet to be able to find the FAQ. I did find the CSS generators and to my horror do not produce any code I can use.

(The top generator, on this site, produces what looks like an unnecessarily complicated table. The lower one does not load right so I have the color bar covering a portion of the generator.)

I taught myself HTML in 1996 or so. I learned it by viewing source code and figuring out what tags did what. Unfortunately, I can't do that with CSS no matter how hard I've tried.

I am unable to post questions on the forum as I can't find the code necessary to post. If I could find it, I wouldn't need to post it to ask where to find it.

Hi, zyndell

It appears you're trying step into the deep end right off the bat. Start by working through some tutorials to broaden your knowledge base. Since you learned html in '96, you have a lot to unlearn before moving on. Work your way through the tutorials at htmldog. Take them in order. They alternate between html and css to teach best practice; tying the two together as you advance step by step.

As your knowledge increases, you'll be better able to form your questions. CSS appears simple on first look, but it's not. It's a powerful declaratory presentation language. As with any powerful language, there are big-toothed gotchas waiting for developer butt to bite.

cheers,

gary

Unplanned code results in a tangled wad of brain-cramping confusion.

There are enough html & css demos and tutorials to be interesting. Please visit.
