Tinderbox CSS Tutorial

Scott Price begins a promising tutorial series, in which he walks step-by-step through a CSS re-implementation of Derek Powazek's Simplicity Templates.

If I have my way, the end of this process will be one set of templates, three stylesheets, and three completely different looks.
