Hey Out there. 2 questions
Is it possible to design an external css page without the HTML page present then add the css to the htlm in one go?.
Ran a W3C validation test on a html page, the result said pass written in green but there is this (2 warning) written in yellow beside the pass.. any ideas on what the warning means?

Better post the warning here.

It is possible to create external CSS files and LINK them to HTML files so the two are separate that is the most efficient way. I don't have a Crystal-ball so cannot see without you posting the markup here what those two errors were. So if you post the CODE here I can have a look what 'warnings' were being flagged by the W3C Validation Service.
For markup questions on Ian's book the correct forum to post your question would be: Getting Started With Web Design you'll then more likely get people whom know what they are talking about regarding this Book answering the thread.

Those warnings were just about assuming the Character encoding is set to UTF-8 as per META, and to remember HTML5 is still "Experiential" so in this specific case (for this particular off-line file) there appears to be NO faults.

This might be asking a lot but I am suck trying to figure out why the html & css are not exciting the commands to get the desired results when it comes to the background images and floating an image to a desired location.. So this is what I'm asking of you. Can I upload the css, html & background images along with 2 screen shots one of what I am see and one of what it should be and asked that you run it and let me know result. I have tried someone over at (Getting started with web design ) and I'm waiting to see if the person run it..
