Friends, I have found what I need at

http://www.mako4css.com/index.htm

Well worth a look. Gives the basics of CSS

The following is now superfluous for me.

First, let me thank everyone for the first class help that I have been given.
But I am still left with a problem.

CSS: I still have difficulties with the groundplan. OK, so I have all the various codes that I need, but I am in the position of a would be builder wanting to build a house, having almost no knowledge of how to start and being put into the builders yard with all the necessary materials but with no directions.

Up to now I have just gone along on a suck it and see basis, but I would like some general guidance as to the overall planning of the Style sheet. Can anyone point me to a source of such information.

My biggest problems are with nesting and positioning blocks of text and images. I have a WYSIWYG editor which allows me to be lazy and drag things to where I want them. I would much rather do it the hard/easy way.

Happy coding friends,

Very basic, not always entirely correct, and rather outdated at that.

Therefore, I'd like to point you to the tutorials found at HTML Dog (http://www.htmldog.com/), which in my opinion will do a better job at serving as the solid foundation you seem to be looking for.

Many thanks for the URL. It is a very good next stop.
The other site was just what I needed to get an overview of CSS. I did notice that it was an old site. But the new site - I am looking forward to.
