    Intro to CSS - Lesson 1, CSS? WTF?

    wow, very nice, good tutorial for begginers. I like how descriptive each part is, like explaining each different letter that entails writing the code. When i first learned css as far as books or teachers, it always was confusing because they told you just what to write, and not what any of it meant to an extent. Good job Anthony

    you did an incredible job with this tutorial. it is very, very well explained. although, i did find a few typos or grammatical errors in the first few parts:

    "You are already familiar with clothing styles, music styles, hair styles, ect."

    "A style sheet seperates formatting of the document from the content of the document."

    I'll remove it if you don't want it there. It's a very useful site and I will make good use of it myself. Any alterations to the title line that you want. Let me know. (You can PM me if you like.)

    Nice job.
    I look forward to seeing more tutorials written in your very clear and easy to understand style.

    Spelling:
    There are two rules reguarding specificity, but they will be discussed in a later tutorial.
    delete the red 'u'

    Very nice tutorial!

    Noticed a typo tho :
    Inheritance
    You inherited certain physical traits from your parents.
    In CSS, selectors keep their traits ultil you style them differently.

    Nice Tutorials,

    It would be nice if at the end of each tutorial you gave an assignment or two. This way readers of your tutorials will have some questions to practice applying there newly a queried knowledge on CSS.

    Nicely laid out.

    Two comments
    1) I think you are a tad dismissive of using percentages for sizing text (what about liquid layouts?) I don't find percentages at all confusing.

    2) You use point sizes for sizing text which is contrary to the generally accepted view that points should only be used for print stylesheets, and it is better to use ems or percentages for screen stylesheets. Ems and percentages facilitate text resizing and make your pages more accessible.

    I'm going to move this to Site Reviews, where I think it's more appropriate.
