Default Figure 6.2

Hi Imar:

I loaded the code for Figure 6.2 into my working directory for the chapter and proceeded without a hitch until Step 4 on page 211. There was no style sheet in the Styles directory. I went back and picked up the styles.css file from Chapter 4 and copied it into the Styles folder, dragged it onto the Frontend.master.

No joy...

The sidebar wasn't where it should be according to Figure 6-2.

After a few minutes, I had a flat-forehead epiphany (you know...slamming the heel of your hand into your forehead while you say: "How could I be so stupid!") and remembered that changes don't take effect until they are saved. A quick Save All and FIgure 6-2 looked perfect.

As an author myself, I know what you went through to produce this is extremely well-written. I may be teaching an intro web programming class and if it comes about, this is the best book I've seen for the text. Again...job very well done!
