Need advice on finding best presentation of CSS selectors

Hi, I’ve recently started learning XHTML and CSS. At this early stage I’m finding it hard to remember the details of the selector types and their application.

I’ve looked at a number of books and sites, which show selector lists in one form or another But none of them seem ideal for visually scanning whilst working on files in the editor. So far I’ve learnt most from Ralph Philips videos on YouTube.

In one of his videos he shows a quite nicely structured selector list page but I haven’t found it using Google.

Pleas can any of the seasoned Web Designers remember and recommend a favourite layout or cheat-sheet which displays the range of selectors well?

I am not 100% if I follow you. A selector can be named nearly anything you want. Does this article help? http://css.maxdesign.com.au/selectutorial/

Thanks, put like that, I suppose it would make for a big list of possibilities.
Initially, I was hoping to find something defining the basic groups of selectors and their uses that I could perhaps print and stick on the wall behind the computer.

The link you give seems to lead to a good starting point for me, so thanks again.

Well, you can apply CSS to any HTML tag. Granted not all CSS attributes apply to all tags the same way. How about: http://lesliefranke.com/files/reference/csscheatsheet.html

Printed and on the wall. Another positive step. Thank you.

One thing that I have found helpful was to use something like Adobe’s Dreamweaver, which suggests tag and attribute content.

I have given it up in favor of notepad++, but it did help quite a bit when I was learning.

Thanks TexasBob,
I’m using Notepad++ and have been considering the use of DreamWeaver.
I understand the value, as you describe it but the fact that you’ve taken up Notepad++ in preference to DreamWeaver reduces my enthusiasm for investing in the more expensive editor a little.

I learned what I know about CSS from Dreamweaver, it suggest you all css properties when you edit it. I love Dreamweaver.
