You can learn it. You can use it.  But first you really oughta see it.

I take great joy in the hope you'll find these printed references and free online resources
gratuitously useful in your web design adventures, with Color, HTML, and Style Sheets.

I believe complexity is best mastered by seeing the whole picture in rich detail; that
expertise consists mainly of vivid mental pictures; that working knowledge is best aided
by precise reminders within quick reach.  I've tried to give you both extremes, the totality
at a glance, with as much useful detail as can fit. 
It'd sure as heck be my honor if this 
works for you.
