It has been so many years since I've fiddled with css that I'm not even going to try and count (the earth had cooled, and the dinosaurs were frolicking). I'm one who's really used to twiddling with plain html, and in comparison css code has always been kind of a pain to deal with. I have screwed up many a webpage by twiddling with code and then not having a backup to reset the thing to.
Tip #1 - always cut and paste a copy of the original code before you begin messing about with anything. Save it to a document on your desktop. Because that way you can always use that code to restore everything if you create something hideous - and then you can start twiddling with the code again. Let's just say I learned this the hard way.
Thankfully other users have foreseen many questions and so there are already some tutorials for css customization on Booklikes. I am wildly relieved.
From this point on it's Reblog of j4n3m3's post:
