Default A question about Simple CSS

I ran across this software and was wondering if anyone has experience with it? I have been thinking of changing my website and have found CSS to be a steep learning curve. This is its website: http://www.hostm.com/css/

Cheers

I assume that you are wanting to do external style sheets, and I believe simple css will work well for that. Although I have never used simple css personally I have heard good things about it around the net. I gave it a quick look over and it appears to be as complete as any others that I have used.

Once you begin to understand how css works I think you will find it as easy as html to implement. I don't know if you use firefox as your browser, but there is a plugin called "web developer" shttps://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/60 It is a extremely useful tool for css. One thing you can use it for is to examine css of existing webpages. If you see something you like you can see how it was done. Do a quick search on the internet for the uses of "web developer" and you will find it is one of the single most useful plug-ins ever made for a browser.

If its blogging then you should consider Wordpress. Its the easiest that I've come across and does not need any CSS or coding knowledge. You can change themes and the look of your blog anytime.

On the other side, if you want to learn CSS, here is a good start:

Thank you all for your inputs

I will look into these suggestions. I'm beginning to realize that CSS is one of those things that you just have to learn. I guess letting software make things easier is fine but understanding the fundamentals is a must.
