CSS - Style Sheets

Chris Pye I'm competant at basic html and (using NoteTab) I feel comfortable making my ebooks this way.
I have, however, been considering learning about cascading style sheets (CSS) because I believe their templating nature may be quicker in the long run.
I'm sure there would be no problem with EbookComplier a such, but I've also read that many older browsers don't recognise CSS.
So - what happens if they don't?
Anyone else using style sheets? Any problems/advice?
I'd like reassurance before investingtime learning CSS!

Alaska Chris -

Stylesheets are definitely worthwhile.  It will save you a lot of formatting, and make your pages much easier to build and view.  It's not complex.  There are a lot of great tutorials out there, and tiny apps that will help create your .css.

 Backwards-compatibility is not a problem either: if the .css is not evoked properly, there is no error message - you just don't get the formatting and fonts you specified.  Instead of your Arial or Verdana typefaces, it reverts to Times New Roman.

hope this helps.

best -
