    Layout Gala: a collection of 40 CSS layouts based on the same markup.
    Good read about how to create different layouts based on the same markup.

    thank you


    These links were a great resource, not having much knowledge I was able to pick it up rather quickly. With full understanding of how they work in the html file.

    Color Picker


    I'm surprised nobody's posted a color picker yet.

    My favorite web based picker is Visibone's Colorlab (visibone.com/colorlab)

    I also use the color picker in The GIMP (gimp.org) because you can copy/paste the selected color codes out of it. You can also create your own pallets and save them for future reference. A good combination if you're also doing the graphic design for a site.

    Very good CSS Selector Article


    http://css.maxdesign.com.au/selectutorial/index.htm

    This gives you a primer on CSS selectors. I have been looking for such an article for a while but didn't even know how to search for this. I didn't know that the things I was looking for were "selectors". It probably needs a bit of editing done to be more clear when it's giving code samples. but otherwise is a GREAT read.

    I'm going to put some keywords in here that I tried to use for other's doing similar searches.
    CSS, selector, selecting, ID, class, element, property, properties

    Warning: I recommend you avoid w3schools.com and cssplay.co.uk.

    Would anyone have a problem with me removing links to those sites from here?

    Anyway...

    SitePoint and Search-This.com have some great articles:
    http://www.sitepoint.com/article/htm...eginners-guide
    http://www.sitepoint.com/article/htm...perfect-markup
    http://www.sitepoint.com/category/css/
    http://www.search-this.com/category/css/

    Make Your Site BulletProof With Floats is also worth reading.

    For references, I mainly use the official specs (I'm not going to list all of the CSS3 modules, if you need help finding one, just ask) and SitePoint's CSS Reference:
    http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/
    http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-selectors/
    http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-background/
    http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-box/
    http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-ui/
