This is a bit confusing to me. I'm writing about it because I find 
this site to be invaluable! I bought the book and it changed my life 
*smiles*.

My old non-working url for the Eric Meyer Style sheet is/was
<http://webreview.com/pub/Style_Sheets>.

The new url for the Eric Meyer Style sheet site, which I tracked from 
the webreview site <http://webreview.com/> OR 
<http://style.webreview.com/>, is 
<http://www.webreview.com/style/css1/charts/mastergrid.shtml>. Not 
exactly short <g>.

The message I received from when cklicking the mastergrid url below 
is, "Not Found The requested URL /mastergrid.html was not found on 
this server."

Anyway, keep us posted as to, "will the real url please stand up."
Thanks,
Leslie Berrie
