What’s your skill level? Really newbish like you need to know about divs floating etc. or are you looking for CSS3ish effects? Learning by doing and for the beginning also learning by copying. If you take a look at live sites’ CSS and try to replicate or even copy parts of them to understand how it works.

How about getting a simple theme and taking a look at the CSS ? I don’t remember how I learned it… I think it was learning by doing step by step, googling around on the interwebs searching my stuff together from different pages.

Thanks! I was also wondering if there is like a GUI builder or something for css…

Like, for example in frontpage(LOL) I can create a layout using tables with drag and drop… Does such a thing exist for css?

Adobe Dreamweaver is kind of like that, but I wouldn’t recommend it. You’ll never master CSS if you’re doing it that way. But if you must, I’d check out Dreamweaver http://www.adobe.com/products/dreamweaver.html

I dont like dreamweaver it’s too bloated… Anything free and maybe available for linux?

Plus, why is it bad to create a layout with GUI builder? Wouldn’t it speed up things… Rather than change a bit in a css file then refresh the html page? Just curious…
