Complexities..

I hope you are not a teacher, parent or ever get involved in instructing anyone!
You automatically assume that if someone cannot get it to work, they must be dumb????
Can you figure out the structural rigidity of a space launch vehicle nozzle required to place a 1500kg satellite into orbit - I just happen to do it for a living... I bet you could - just by creating a folder and a file!

First of all, you are insulting the editor-in-chief of the hints site by saying

" just create a file named mystyle.css (or whatever you like, ending in .css) " is not clear enough for a hints site.

And as for Mr. Space Shuttle, anyone who can't read simple instructions is dumb, or illiterate. No prejudice against illiterate people, I reckon there are dome fairly smart illiterates who have had a hard time in life, but for the rest of us, as I suggested if you can't create a simple text file and point safari at it via the preferences dialog, and then criticise the editor for his step-by-step instructions not being clear enough, you are a dumbass, as you so clearly pointed out . . . "It's not rocket science"

Okay okay...I don't think this is the appropriate forum for such exchanges, so I'll concede that I'm simply a dumbass (along with everyone else who didn't instantly get this hint to work on their systems). I mean...it could be worse...I could make a thoughtless typo within a rant about illiterate people...but I digress.

I doubt very much that Rob was offended by my posts...but let it be known that I did not enter into this thread for the mere purposes of offending or insulting anyone. That would just be "unconstructive."
