    It's really up to you. CSS3 looks really cool and can do some great things but it is not functional in internet explorer and older browsers.

    CSS 2.1 is a subset of CSS 3. The additions that CSS 3 provides are being progressively implemented and so some now work in all browsers, some work in some browsers but not others, and some don't work at all yet.

    You can use those additions provided by CSS 3 that work in at least some browsers as long as your page is still useable in those browsers that don't recognise those parts of the CSS.

    CSS is CSS. You'd don't choose one over the other. CSS3 is just more CSS. The reason they named it CSS3 is because there was enough new stuff coming out that it deserved to have it's own version.

    Like, felgall said you have to watch out for which browsers support which CSS features. Some browsers "Cough, Cough Internet Explorer", don't have very good support for the features in CSS3. Some browsers "Cough, Cough Internet Explorer" don't even support some features in CSS2.

    Best to stick to CSS 2.1 and the modules of CSS 3 that have actually been made standards and possibly those that all the browsers support that are close to becoming standards.

    CSS3 is the more development and advance of CSS; as well as new ways to do things such as having rounded borders or gradients. Css3 is your one stop shop.

    The biggest difference between CSS2 and CSS3 is that CSS3 has been split up into different sections, called modules. Each of these modules is making it's way through the W3C in various stages of the recommendation process. CSS2 was submitted as a single document with all the Cascading Style Sheets information within it..

    It will be once it is finished but so far only about 5% of it has actually become a standard.
