A little suggestion :)

Hi I don't know if this is in place or soon to be? I find the videos great but sometimes i would like a quick page reference guide that has all css and html code with examples, Similar to W3schools but more accurate ;) , I could find them else where and i do have other materials. But why not try keep me on the Treehouse website? instead of me using Google something for a quick answer :) plus makes me feel less like a traitor.

DITTO!

(extra ditto if you can use the code challenge software the same way that w3schools has their "try it" buttons).

I know it is extra work (but maybe can be released in a second version), but it would be nice to have a "Treehouse Teacher Comments" section next to items in the reference that illustrate, in addition to what something does, what the preferred usage or alternate solutions are.

example: which browsers don't support certain CSS3 properties (max-width, for example), but what is commonly done to allow for graceful degradation... or this javascript works on all mobile devices, but not in certain desktop browsers...

Actually... as I type this, maybe another full reference that shows mobile/device/browser-specific things that people should know. -- examp: iOS resizes text to a min of 13px

Have you looked at the

"View Code in Playground" feature? It is great and is possibly what you are looking for.

Alexander - The "View Code in Playground" feature is a blue button on the right-hand side just below the video. You can find it on stages of a HTML/CSS/JS courses which have project files associated with them.

You can read more about the Code Playground in the forum post where it was introduced
