SharePoint 2010 requires a better understanding of CSS than you needed in SharePoint 2007. You really should be able to plan your css. If you can use the box model on purpose. If you know how to clear a float. If you understand a stacking index, you are okay. If you don’t, practice on plain old HTML first. Build your own HTML from scratch and style it. Draw a design and build it from scratch Plan it.
