8.0% "Stuff that has been going on at work lately has made me realize that I should've never stopped trying to improve my skills and learn new skills. I understand some basic HTML but want to know more. One thing I can already say about this book is that it's graphically stunning. Very inviting to read and look at."

14.0% "I do like that it told me how to make lists. I get frustrated with bloggers list presets sometimes. They always seem to get confused and not do what I want them to."

23.0% "Book points out that some designers frown on animated gifts because of overuse in the 90s. I bet these same people cringe when encountering tumblr (for the record, I love tumblr)"

28.0% "Some of this stuff I've created in Dreamweaver before but I feel like understand the background code better is good. I thought tables would be more complicated than that. Pleasantly surprised."

48.0% "Next chapter is about color! *splashes you all with rainbows* CSS chapter made sense. But when I tried to put it into the HTML (internal CSS) it didn't work on my free text wrangler & I don't know why. But apparently external is a better practice anyways."

51.0% "GRRR. I can't figure out if I've mistyped something form the example or if the example just doesn't work. I am tugging at my hair in frustration. (A nervous habit of mine)"

51.0% "I have spent an hour piddling with things/changing things to try to figure out if I did something wrong with this CSS style sheet. If anyone know code and is willing to tell me why this isn't working I would love you forever. And if that doesn't work I have bribes."

51.0% "FREAKING A I JUST CANT SPELL ACRONYMS SOMETIMES. And it took me an hour to solve that."

59.0% "I'm reading this book so slowly because I'm trying to do it on days off when I have the mental capacity to absorb knowledge. The chapter on text was pretty good (though some of it I knew from college graphic design courses)"
