Issue 258

Another lockdown Tuesday, I miss going places and having conversations with people about CSS. Thankfully lots of folk are still thinking and writing about the subject, so I am able to bring you a roundup of the things I've seen this week.

I have also been editing and making more video live for my CSS Layout Online Course, adding the first half of Core Skills today once the caption files came back. I've got the other half of the Core Skills course to edit, and then I'm on the final stretch. So if you want to get the earlybird discount take a look and use code EARLYBIRD.
