Can I use the normalize.css and responsive.css files for future projects?
Are these files designed for us to use for future projects or do we need to find alternate ones (such as Eric Meyer's Reset or html5doctor)?
Also, if we were to make a slight change to the normalize.css file (let's say colors), will it impact it's function?

normalize.css is a common css file used across the industry, you can find it at it's source (here)[necolas.github.com/normalize.css/].
responsive.css is also a common css file that you might see on other websites. Unlike normalize, a responsive.css file is individualized for each particular website.
You can use normalize.css without configuration with any web project you like. However, you're more likely to build your own custom responsive.css for your own sites for your own needs and styles (though treehouse's responsive.css certainly starts you off in the right direction and on a good foundation)

Hey man. Those are completely free source. Feel free to edit to your own specifications and re use all you like :)
Want extra padding in your table by default? BAM!! Done. Want the h1 tag to be Bright purple instead of black? BAM! Done.
You just made it happen and you were totally allowed to do it!
Another one that is worth playing around with is the grid.css
Happy coding, Bro :))
