CSS CSS Foundations Getting Started with CSS Adding CSS to a Page

Do I have to create a new style.css, or are they explaining how to do it on the video?

I'm doing the exercise Getting Started with CSS and the teacher in the video is showing how to play around with css. I'm trying to follow along with the video, and he says to download the exercises. I download them and it seems to have the content already created. He goes on about how to create these folders with the new modifications that he has made in the video. But the folders are already created with the content when I try to save the progress he is showing. Am I supposed to follow along for now, or do I have to override these already modified files? He doesn't seem to explain it correctly.

Well I believe its personal preference and comfort level with CSS, when I did the CSS lecture modified the files. Hope this helps

Vote for me.

I personally feel working along with him is the best .... there are 2 folders start and final ..... open the start folder and follow along ...... create the new file style.css just as he does , but the more styles is already ready made !! cheers !!

Thanks, I'll see what I can do.
