      The enlarged vedios in CSS Selectors Part 1 and 2 showing the source code is not very clear.

      It was explainig a lot about the changes to fonts and font colors, I was not able to see the content clearly.
      I am watching it using IE 9.

      I answered two of the questions incorrectly because they used 'P' instead of 'p' for paragraph tags and 'Table' instead of 'table' for table tags - I thought all CSS was case sensitive, but I guess not ( just true for defining styles i.e. class names and id names).

      good, i can learn new thing about html5. I am unable to see video of CSS-2 part.

      Good video however you forgot to mention the opacity parameter is for the element and not only the text like color is, so your element would be 50% in opacity instead of the text.

      There is always this trick.. Win-R, wmplayer, Ctrl-U, paste the URL to the WMV.

      Enjoy. Smiley

      Good explanation, little hard to follow some of the blurry text.

    • User profile image

      You know what it is is when you open the video fullscreen then the visual studio text is blurry and hard to read, but if you watch it in the small box on the page then it will not be blurry but is too small to read.  It seems to be an issue with scaling the video larger to full screen.  It always helps if you guys would read what the code says when you show code from your computer, since your computer screen doesn't scale clearly into our computer screens, but you can download all the source code from codeplex.

      @Olo -- you are right..
      An HSL color value is specified with: hsl(hue, saturation, lightness).

      Hue is a degree on the color wheel (from 0 to 360) - 0 (or 360) is red, 120 is green, 240 is blue. Saturation is a percentage value; 0% means a shade of gray and 100% is the full color. Lightness is also a percentage; 0% is black, 100% is white.
