No problem.  If you haven't found this yet, here's a great resources for
getting up to speed on CSS:


And if you like specs...

You're welcome.  Glad you like it. :-)

It's walking a fine line to copy styles from another site so closely
without asking permission first.  I'm certainly happy for you to borrow
from the stylesheet, learn from it, etc.  (See the updated CSS for notes
about using and modifying the stylesheets on samba.org.)  Perhaps you could
use the CSS as a starting point and build your own look from that.

You aren't copying the samba.org look *exactly*, which is the only thing
prohibited without permission.  But you are awfully close. :-)

I'm glad you like the look. really, I am.  But try to add more of your own
touch, so it's not like a mini-samba.org. :-)
