    Great, easy to follow course

    I really enjoyed this course! It's been almost 10 years since I had done any extensive html and css work and I really wanted a quick refresher. This course helped bring me up to speed on some more modern techniques and I used it to great success in redoing an old site of mine. Thanks!
