    I am not sure if it's just on my computer but the demo for "•Module (02a): CSS Selectors and Style Properties, Part 1" doesn't show clearly. Text are blurred and can't read properly. When normal size, too small. When fullscreen, its sort of pixelized/blurred. Didn't get a chance to download though, I am viewing online. Thanks!

  • @Lei: yepp


    I have slow performance playing the video,, n sometimes the video is behind the audio! kinda weird



  • Kuldeep RanaKuldeep Rana

    Really liked your passion and way of teaching....

  • SantoshSantosh

    Nice video. Thank you. For CSS selectors using attributes, I see that any value works and not necessarily only that attribute which begins with "data-". Any thoughts?

  • @Lei: Happaned the same thing to me, i 've just downloaded de MP4 version for PC, it's fine..

  • Paul KumarPaul Kumar

    p::first-line {color:green;font-size:35px;} ..worked fine
    Problem: Sample program editor key event issue (may be)
    Solution: Just delete "e" and retype for "first-line" (just any char like e)

    I got doubt when we have to use between "::" and ":" but got clarified after playing sometime with them

    After all the big push for html5, why do yo keep trying to default your video player to silverlight where it first of all asks you to download a plugin??
