Buongiorno from 10 degree c sunny wetherby Uk
I'm going back to the drawaing board with CSS by making sure I understand (or try too) the critical fundamentals of the language. Apart from the Box model what other css principles are worth grasping before meddling with code?

All of them. :lol:
I recommend you get a good book that takes yo through the language so that you get a decent grounding in all of it.

The key principles that I would recommend getting your head round are:
- inheritance, cascading and descendent selectors
- specificity and priority
- different types of positioning (absolute, relative, fixed, float, static)
- shortcuts for multiple properties (like border, font, margin)
- differences between normal screen, mobile and print.
How's that to be going on with?
