I've tried to learn CSS
but when I try and use class's they just dont work


Here's my code

quote:
body {color: black; background-color:white; FONT-FAMILY: verdana;}
table (background-color;}
td.top (background-color:#3399FF;}
td.nav {background-color:white;}

td {background-color:#FFFFFF;}



but when I use
<td class=top> a </td>

it dosent work,, am I missing something?

Use <td class="top"> a </td> instead and it should work. The font-family in body should be in lowercase...

On top of that - if you don't have any atrributes specified for an item, don't list it. If your default TD background color is white, you don't need to specify a class with a white background color.

The problem is that you used a paranthesis instead of a '{' (don't know what they're called in english, heh) at the beginning of your declaration.

The problem is the order in which you put your style sheet...

body {color: black; background-color:white; FONT-FAMILY: verdana;}
table (background-color;}
td.top (background-color:#3399FF;}
td.nav {background-color:white;}

td {background-color:#FFFFFF;}

When the browser encounters <td class="top">, it goes through each thing in the style sheet to see if it matches. ("Is it a <body> tag? no. Is it a <table> tag? no. Is it a <td> tag with class="top"? yes! So I'll set the background color to #3399FF. Is it a <td> tag with class="nav"? no. Is it a <td> tag? yes! So I'll set the background color to #FFFFFF.")

See the problem? Later things in the CSS override earlier things. So put the more general ones (like td) before the more specific ones (like td.top).

Edit: HZR is also correct.
