7:20  An introduction to Cascading Style Sheets
          presented by Ted Roche

       Cascading Style Sheets are a way to separate the content and
       structure of a web page from the stylistic elements. This allows
       the style to be changed without changing the content, better
       accessibility for folks with visual impairments, better
       processing by search engines and ease of maintenance by letting
       designers and content producers to work in parallel.

       In this session, Ted will show why separating CSS from HTML
       makes sense, and how to do it. He'll review the basics of what
       CSS is, how the elements are combined, what 'cascade' refers to,
       and how to use CSS to specify layout using the CSS box model.
       He'll finish up with some suggestions on tools to use and
       references for further study.

       Ted is a principal in Ted Roche and Associates, LLC, a
       Contoocook-based consulting company concentrating in
       database-centric web-based and rich-client applications for
