I never went to school past high school, nobody taught me, I learned from some great books (Peter Norton, Jeff Duntemann, Gary Cornell, Tom Swan), then later articles on the Internet, and it took me years before I could read an article and know what they were talking about. I remember how it was then, and try to explain things as I wished somebody would explain it to me back then.
Yeah, CSS is like magic. I love working with it. I just wish IE were more compliant! This is gorgeous, but it doesn’t work in IE because IE doesn’t comply with standards.
