    I am just relearning css, tbh i hardly did anything with css, always just got code from elsewhere, but i am at the point where this is no longer a viable options, and need to knuckle down and get it sorted.

    when i started leanring js i was suggested to start with es6 ( i know not related)

    i was wondering if there is a good starting point or do i have to learning all legasy stuff? i know will have to take the time with sass as well.

    any suggestions would be appriciated

    You need to learn CSS.  SASS is a CSS preprocessor which is a scripting language that writes CSS.

    Anyway, there are tons of CSS tutorials floating around on the Internet.

    thanks i don't think w3schools is a good learning resource but a great reference resource.

    I was wondering if everything in css is still relevent, eg possitioning was always a point of issue when i looked up stuff, grids seem to be moving towards flex grids.

    are there any conventions which re good to follow and is bootstrap still a good framework?

    You're question covers a lot of different topics.

    Yes, CSS is relevant.

    Positioning is a mixture of HTML and CSS.

    Tabular data is used for reports not layout, if that's what you're asking.

    Bootstrap is a fine responsive framework and used in Visual Studio templates.  There are other response frameworks that a Google search will turn up.

    Try maybe https://www.webfx.com/blog/web-design/css-methodologies/ or https://medium.com/actualize-network/modern-css-explained-for-dinosaurs-5226febe3525 as it seems you are looking for higher level view.

    As someone has already done, I also recommend you w3schools.

    I also recommend a book that I bought a few years ago and that was really useful, it's
    HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites
    and you can simply buy it on amazon.

    Good Luck!wink
