Still learning the ropes and treehouse forum always gets the best answers so...

I'm just starting to make a few sites to see what im capable of and I remembered Nick Pettit giving us a normailize.css style sheet to load into the site.

I know the purpose of them and why they are needed but the question is do I code this normailze.css myself is a something that is available on the web, can I simply use the one downloaded for the course from treehouse ???

Well you see where im going with this, any advice welcome !!


You can use whatever you want; normalize.css or search the Web for 'css reset' or something similar; or write your own - something as simple as:

* {
  /* typically not recommended to apply styles to all elements - this is just an example */
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;

Hey Craig,

Its best to downed it from the Normalize website, that way you know you have the latest one.

Here is a link to the Normalize website, click to download then when the page loads, simply copy the code then paste it into a new file in your css folder and name it normalise.css

Hope this helps.

Thanks Wayne
