    Which reference did you build these cheatsheets from? I definitely want to do it, but I definitely DON'T want to do it wrong.


  • @Max: Hi Max, I don't have (and can't remember) specific cheat sheets online.  I know that is an unsatisfying answer ... I would make sure that the cheat has a comments area associated with it where people can comment on the accuracy of the cheats, and then you see a change log where those changes are addressed.  Hope that helps a little!

  • Check out http://w3schools.com, I use this all the time for reference. Most people who have been doing web development for sometime hate this resource but I find it very useful from time to time.
