Any really good places to learn CSS & webcode? I've done a few online tutorial sites already and have been playing with very simple code. I seem to be stuck on the 'orientation' of which it LOOKS at the data and how/where to stick stuff, label stuff, code itself,etc and how it related to eachother....(hard to explain).
And even some of the webcode forums are sooooo far advanced that I'm embarrassed to ask questions there....

Here's a nice site for viewing CSS in action. All the sites on the right use the same text code and vary the look and feel with different CSS code:

Very cool!
I actually have a test index and css style sheet that I've been playing with. I think now - I'm adding things to it but not quit putting 2+2 together on exact placement methods and/or not quit sure how div tags work and where to put them within all the code, etc. It's hazy right now.

I just need more time, research, and playing with it. It surely isn't gonna be learned over night.

I'll check out more of that ZEN garden tomorrow. THANKS!
