    Ok, I admit that I have absolutely no thorough knowledge as to how to manipulate CSS fully; matter of fact, my knowledge in the field is REALLY limited other than having been lucky a few times with a few codes here and there.
    Question: is there a real simple CSS tutorial on the net ( bit like the Mickey Live Flash MX video tutorials .... (Mickey Live's tutorials)

    Yours,

    There are alot of good tutorials on css on the web, but they mostly teach only syntax or give short tutorials on the subject. They dont explain why they are done a certin way. And I think that is the most important and first thing that must be taught in order for you to fully understand what CSS is trying to accomplish. There has been only one reference that I have found that hits this right on the head, Designing CSS Web Pages by Christopher Schmitt.

    If you read the reviews many of them are unfortunatly negative. Many people expect this book to give indepth examples and syntax tutorials on how to write css, and this book does not do that. This book is not ment to teach you css. What this book does, is it clarify what exactly are you accomplishing by using css.

    I wrote a review for this book back in september explaining that this book was a perfect primer on the subject of CSS, and I still feel that today, and I have read alot of books on the subject. After you have read this book you can move onto other books like eric myer on css. This is a great walk-through/case study book where you can see projects being taken apart. Again not so much a tutorial book but a perfect learning tool. These two books will get your mind in the right direction on how to approach css projects so when you do learn the more technical aspects, it will be absorbed much easier.

    "having been lucky a few times with a few codes here and there..."

    haha, I hate it when people say "codes", they make it sound like video games. Not that there's anything wrong with video games..

    Good luck!
