    Great tips!

    I really like your website
    I find the tips to be very useful and detailed
    very cogent and with relevant screen shots and snippets of code

    It not too complex for me to understand and not to basic and over simplified
    Just exactly the way a help/reference page should be!

    TIA Dave
