CSS Tutorial Updated
I have re-done the layout for my CSS Tutorials http://css.somepeople.net
They are valid HTML 4.01 and CSS2
Too simple a layout? not sure myself. Might 'tweak' them a little further.
The address is http://css.somepeople.net

The neatness of your source code is something every webmaster should aspire to. Very easy to read and understand, troubleshooting must be a breeze.
Now if I may be critical
meta tags are better on only one line, your keywords tag ends on a second line.
I am surprised not to see a header tag in your style sheet (I should not talk, I think I may have left ot out of the new xhtml version)
Title tags seem a little long, the more words in the title the more diluted and less valued they become.
just spotted the h2
Just out of curiousity since I am now doing it, Why did you go with HTML 4.01 transitional when you are so close to xhtml 1.0 transitional. I did not scan too closely but from what I saw it appears only the " /" in the meta tags prevents it.
Great job, I wish you did not go public with it though. I feel that maybe I should start over with my redo

oops sorry Dave! I can restore the old one in seconds if need be,
Your right. I will finish it off tonight, clean up the metas and start on XHTML compliance (The danger of copy&paste )

Where's your seal of W3C approval?
Ahhhh, I remember the first time I got a page to validate XHTML 1.1. Made my day (treated myself to a case of beer and rented two movies).
Nice job on the tutorials. One question.
I've noticed in alot of online tutorials that they use all uppercase for their code examples. Looking forward, wouldn't it be prudent to change all you're code examples to reflect this? Or do they (and you) use uppercase so beginners can follow the coding easily.

In theory, all CSS properties are not case sensitive.
However, the w3c recommend lowercase html and css.
most designers are moving toward lower-case. Its been years since I habitually used uppercase, though to be honest its much easier to look at html code when the tags are uppercase but the rest is lowercase.
whilst its easier for beginners to use uppercase in code examples, I prefer to set a 'good' example as it were.
