Help appreciated. I understand there are probably lots of options, but would like to follow the tutorial as precisely as possible.

You have under "Forum" icon on the left side also "Workspaces" so you can do all testing and learning inside of that ;)

Hi Tom,

If your following along with the tutorial, it will either be Sublime text (if it's a older lesson) or workspaces, which is excessable to everyone at Treehouse (it's the bottom icon in the menu).
Either way, workspaces is going to be a good choice, you will be able to do everything you need with that.

Hope this helps.

Hi Tom,

Do you use a text editor for your HTML as you can usually use the same for your CSS? Something like Text Wrangler, Brackets, or Sublime Text (which I think Zac is using) should do the trick.

You would then simply Ctrl + click (right click on PC) on the file (possibly named something like style.css), choose Open With > and select your chosen text editor.

Hope that helps
