    Hi,

    Good day!

    Learning CSS is a great hobby... Hobby? yes make it your hobby on doing tutorials, finding more and more sample of coding a website using CSS. What i'm trying to say is that, you can learn fast depending on your availability and willingness. Of course, don't forget to pray first to have guidance.

    Base on my experience the more you code the more you will appreciate CSS, and the more you will be learning new technique of coding CSS ;)

    Thanks and God bless always!

    A couple of days to learn enough to do some pretty good sites from scratch. The formatting part is pretty intuitive, but figuring out how to use <div> tags to layout pages took some effort, and I still have to do some trial and error.

    When I see a site design I like, I pull up the source and find their css file and see how they make it look that way.

    You have learned HTML likewise CSS is also an easier one to learn. Its good to learn CSS, spend a little more time here you can learn it within 3 to 4 weeks.

    CSS is a set of formatting instructions that controls the looks of a web page. You can build your layout, adjusting size and color of your headings or body text, as well as positioning your pictures on your website. CSS will enhance the look of your website and makes it more attractive for the customers.

    Not long for me. I never started web development until the early 2000s when tables were already obsolete, so I never 'transitioned'.

    I'm still learning css, but to get the basics of it, I gradually learned it over 6 months or so.

    To learn CSS or to learn PROPER CSS, that is the question.... To learn CSS is not even the easiest of tasks.. unless you understand it already from being around it in a technical surrounding, such as a school or workplace where its always talked about.

    Proper CSS only comes from experience.. I'd say, after about 10 commercial large projects, where I knew html for years and really had to outline via CSS did I discover
    it and I self taught myself proper CSS outlining.. which is the key... I still struggle with classes and management, things can get repetitive and easy to over class
    styles.

    But one you learn and know it right, you NEVER have to worry about cross browser compatibility, and I NEVER need browser hacks.. It's a sign you are doing it wrong.

    I am convinved you know you are doing it right if you use a grid outline in your head, and never a margin of over 20px or 1.4em. If i ever see a margin or padding on
    a css file like this.. i know its most likely bad CSS

    Also, keep your CSS CLEAN at all times... format it the same all the time, when you go back to stuff in the future it will save you hours

    What Rimona said. I've been doing CSS for years and am still learning it. But the basics are not that hard to pick up. Start with formatting rules for fonts, colors etc. Those are pretty predictable. Then move on to divs, positioning, and other advanced topics.

    I started truly using CSS about 3 years ago and I'm still learning every day to master it. Of course, you really can't stop learning because they keep coming out with new levels of CSS, but it will probably take a few years before modern browsers fully adopt them.

    I agree with the others here. It did not take me a few days or even a few months. I have gotten to my current level after years of practice, and I still learn new things every now and then (I like the rounded corners!).

    It took me few months to learn and understand CSS. Since there's no one to teach me CSS at home, so I just go to youtube and learn it from there :)

    I always refer HTML as the BODY and CSS as the CLOTHES (where you can design it as you like).

    Once you remember some basic CSS properties everything will be easy.. Keep it up guys, i'm still learning too..
