Q&A

Q1:My styles aren't applying properly, even though I believe I've followed the steps accurately.
A1: It's possible that you might have inadvertently overwritten a piece of syntax, such as a colon or semicolon. Look over the modified code and compare it to the original. Make corrections, save, and rebuild your site again. This should do the trick!
Q2:I don't know a lot about CSS, but I figured I'd jump in and try to make changes to other parts of the stylesheet template on my own, but it's not working the way I thought it would.
A2: CSS is pretty user-friendly at first glance, but as you study it in greater depth, it becomes clear that there are complexities in the way CSS applies rules and resolves conflicts. Without a clear understanding of these issues, you may have gotten yourself in deeper waters! There are many online resources about CSS, and a variety of books to help you learn CSS, but ultimately, if you are not interested in going too deep with the technologies, you'll be best off making minor modifications such as adding images or changing the colors and fonts of existing designs, or having someone design your weblog for you.
Q3:Do all my pages have to have the same style?
A3: No, in fact they do not. Movable Type controls weblog-wide styles from the stylesheet template. However, you can use CSS with Movable Type any way you want. In Hour 12, you'll learn to link and import your own styles so that you can have a more customized, flexible design.
