    Do you use iTunes? IF you are a beginner with CSS there's a nice introductory guide podcast called "The art of code". It's a free video podcast, and you can see it in the iTunes store.

    There's also "CSS tips and tricks" and "CSS-tricks" to download and watch as well, all free.

    Then, if you're like me a TOTAL beginner who HATES reading code manuals, you'll end up paying $250 USA for a year at Lynda.com. :rolleyes: Oh well, I can't be bothered reading manuals and trying to understand what they are talking about, and I prefer the vibe of an "expert sitting by my side showing me the software" so I just watch the movies and slowly soak it in.
    One CSS thing here.

    Lynda has tutorials on everything, but CSS is one area where they have about 3 or 4 courses. I note that just a few days ago they loaded up a new course on modifying Joomla templates, which is a brand-spanking new course!

    And it's great because they say "Before doing this course on editing Joomla templates you'll need to know XHTML, CSS and Joomla Essentials (basics) from our other training packages."

    So you know what you need to work through to get to a given goal.

    Anyway, try the iTunes shows I suggested if $250 USA seems expensive, but for my money, when comparing to a University, I'm sold! I think I'll be paying for Lynda for years to come... it is just a
    "cost of doing business".

    That's fine then. Stick with stuff you can download for free from iTunes such as:-
    Mustardseed media, The Art of Code (which is brilliant), CSS tips and tricks, CSS tricks screencast, and occasionally search the iTunes store for other CSS or XHTML podcasts and see what comes up for free.
