So do I, and so do many others. Having a CS degree doesn't mean you
understand web development. That's no cause for shame, either.

OK, and I've programmed for a number of companies as well. Most of that
work had nothing to do with CSS, and so would have no bearing on my
understanding of it. We your work for these companies in CSS?

I have to wonder how you "employ" these people, being on the dole and
quite apparently destitute. Could it be that they're imaginary, and
accept your imaginary money?

We finally get to an answer, and I won't argue with that. So, given
that CSS lets one separate the presentation of data from the data
itself, maybe you'll say why that's a bad idea.

Well, it took a while, but you finally responded to a very simple
question with a reasonable response, though coated in a lot of
gibberish. I think that's a good sign.
