Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of CSS: Selectors.
- If you're a premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the Exercise Files used throughout this course. Exercise Files for this course are arranged by chapter, and are located in folders that are named based on the movie number they represent. Since each exercise is self-contained, you wanna work with these folders individually. I recommend copying the entire Exercise Files directory to the desktop, and then working on the files from the appropriate folder. I'll call out the location of the Exercise Files for each movie, and you should see a brief overlay that will also tell you where to find those files.
This course focuses on writing selectors, and not on any one specific tool. As such, it really doesn't matter which authoring tool you use. I'll be using Brackets, which you can find here at brackets.io. Now this is a free open source cross-platform editor, but if you're comfortable with using another existing HTML editor, simply continue using that one for this course. Depending upon which platform you're on, I also recommend installing the most recent versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera, and then getting in the habit of testing your pages with multiple browsers.
