CSS Advanced Sass Advanced Variables, Mixins, Functions, and Placeholders Advanced Mixins

Agreed. The CSS code in "Advanced Mixins" does not work in a browser:

.block { border: all solid #999999; }

("all" is an invalid value)

In consideration of the other question posted to this video, it appears "Advanced Mixins" is both in error and outdated.

I would guess he meant to use $size, not $position in this bit of the rule:

border: $size $pattern $color;

With no arguments passed for these, they will always compile to:

border: 1px solid #999999;

With the $position argument passed as something other than the default (as in his example), you'd get:

border-left: 1px solid #999999;
