Hi All,
I am new to web developer and I do not yet quite understand all that is there.  I would like to download install and use the CSS control but I cannot find any instructions on how to do it.  Download and complie doesn't mean a thing to me.
1. Where should I download it to??  The directory where the web developer program resides or where my project resides?
2. Complie with what?  And where does the compiled output go?
I would sure apperciate some help.

Not sure quite what you mean. Which software have you chosen to develop with? What are you trying to download?

To use CSS you either embed CSS code inside your web page or write your code in a stylesheet (a .css file) and attach this to your web page.

You will find an example of these methods here:

Hi NahThenLad,
I am using MS Visual Web Developer and in order to use css it requires a package called "CSS Friendly Control " which must be downloaded, compiled and installed.  The instructions given leave me blank since I don't know what to do with them as I explained in my original question.
1. Where should I download it to??  The directory where the web developer program resides or where my project resides?
2. Complie with what?  And where does the compiled output go?

OK, misunderstood you there.

If you are downloading the source you should download it to wherever you keep your packages. The output file will be a dll that you can use in your other projects.

See if these articles help.

I have it downloaaded and ready to use.   Now I just need to figure out how to incorporate it into my design.  I haven't had time to read the help files on creating master sheets for the site past the requirement to download and install the css friendly filess.

thanks for the help.
