That means that the author of this web page wrote a CSS file (you can write it in Notepad), and is telling the page to refer to this small file.
The beauty of it is that you don't have to use any HTML tags for every line of text. This makes your page load faster.
Let's say you wanted the entire page to appear in bold. Instead of having to put <b></b> tags around all of your text, the file refers to the CSS and makes it all bold. Not having to refer to tags makes your web page faster.
This is just CSS in a nutshell. Go to a web page that doesn't use CSS (say www.google.com). When you change the size of the text, it will get much larger or much smaller. Course, Google is such a well designed, quick loading site that it doesn't matter that they aren't trying to control the text size.

Posted:Quote: are you able to code it?
as in should i go back to my room, put everythingon a sdisk, get here, work on it and ask questions here?
yep, it all comes down to a text file..n yes, many of us here would be able to help ya out if you posted more specific questions..
Also, to mebbe try n simplify it for you even more, if you know html, it's comprised of elements, such as <TABLE>, or <DIV>..All a cascading style sheet does is allow you to assign a style to specific html elements, such as I want this table to have a 1 pixel black border around it and have a red background.
