CSS Build a Simple Website Creating a Website Structure Adding Grid CSS

Proper use of Grid.CSS

Greetings, I am working on building a photo portfolio based off the concepts from this video series. I'm not really sure how to determine how to use the omega class in conjunction with the different width classes. Based off the instructions from Nick it seems like he might use .grid_10 in one div and then .grid_2 omega in a subsequent div for a total of 12. This make sense to me but at the end of the code in the footer area div id #copyright he has the class .grid_12 without omega on it. Also, I've found this course to actually be better than the "How to Make a Website" course. Is that course being updated?

The alpha and omega class is required to get rid of the margin space on the left and right hand sides of the columns, so if u want to get rid of the margin use alpha and omega if u not dont use it.

Thanks for the feedback
