I'm creating my first website and am the point that it's functional, and now, I'd really like for it to look good.

As a newbie to the process, it's the first time that I'm really using CSS and I think that it would be helpful to get some style advice in conjunction with CSS. In particular, on my site I'll have different types of messages such as "Correct!", "Explore!!!" and "Incorrect..." (it's got lots of quizzes/school stuff).

I guess my question, then, is whether anyone has advice on a CSS type site that could give me some ideas about the best way to accomplish this, for example, graphics? combination of font-type/graphic? If the site had examples of "good" font uses, that would be even better.

Thanks so much,
