I know this question falls a bit out of the range of the point of this forum, while occasionally dipping back in every now and then, but hopefully it fits well enough to warrant a reply. For someone that doesn't have the necessary funds to take any college courses pertaining to coding and the like, where is the ideal spot online wherein I can learn CSS? As far as I know, that's the premiere type of code used in Twine, is it not? I'm currently messing around with the simplest type of Twine game, so as to learn the basics, but would eventually like to create something much more complicated and abstract.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
1) CSS - You're right about CSS - CSS controls how the HTML (the hypertext, and eventually also embedded images and background) are styled (colour, size, alignment, and eventually you can look into CSS transformation and take a look into more advanced stuff with regards to how things are presented)
The official (I think...) Twine 1 docs have a bit more on this specific topic, how Twine uses CSS here: http://twinery.org/wiki/stylesheet
Here's a page on the official Twine 1 wiki!
(* CSS Zen Garden reminds me what can be done with just CSS.)
