HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Include External CSS

Is normalize css the same as css reset? Are the codes inside it specific only to the website we are building here?

Are the codes inside the normalize.css applicable to other website for me to practice? Is it a default reset code? Or are the codes inside it only applicable to the website we are building here in Treehouse?

For every project i have every built, personal or professional i have always used normalize.min.css, it gives you a very solid starting point for css. You will have far less work with different css for different browsers.

It's light and it works great, you can always add your own css resets as needed but without normalize you will have alot of work to do for every browser.

Thank you, so the codes inside the normalize css in our workspace here in Treehouse basic codes for normalize.css? By that I mean, I can just download it and I can paste it to whatever website I will be making in the future?

Hi, web pad, The latest version of normalize can be found here from github. Apparently, version 8.0 was committed almost two months ago.

I'm using version 8 for construction of my practice pages here at Treehouse, and I would think v8 would be appropriate for all live pages, too.

Thank you. Will bookmark it.
