In Lesson 3, you worked with Bob to create an external Cascading Style Sheet that provides a simple but attractive aesthetic improvement to the HTML5 web page. This lesson picks up where that lesson left off by discussing the basics of CSS as well as how you can define styles and target certain elements of your HTML5 web pages using selectors.

      hmmm... shouldn't value of href attribute start with "mailto:..." to send email?

      "email:..." doesn't work in my firefox...

      @happyface: Could you point me to the moment in the video where I referenced this?  It may be a mistake, but it's been months since I recorded this and would need to see what I said before I comment further.  I **never** make mistakes, so I'm sure there was just a simple misunderstanding.  Wink  j/k

      in the document for this lesson there is email link and it's <a href="email:bobtabor@yahoo.com">.

      there is also a style for email link:

      a[href^="email"] {

      i was learning some html like 10 years ago and it's something i remembered, plus when clicking on it it should open some email client and there's an error instead...

      oh, forgot the time... it's starts about 31:40.

      i think this overlook comes from that you actually didn't click this link to see an error Wink

      anyway, great series Smiley
