Hello I have an existing project I am working with in Java.

I am trying to create a reset.css, global.css, and ie-only.css to go with the existing project.

I am having trouble figuring out where the CSS would normally be placed in this project explorer. Can you help me figure out where to put the CSS files?

Thanks,
M

There's no a whole lot of information to go off of in your question.  I'm going to assume you're creating a "typical" web archive application (packaged as a WAR or exploded WAR).  If so, the root of that folder is the root of your website.  Most people have sub folders where they put their CSS files in....usually called css.  Some folks put it all in the root folder.  It's not so much where you put the files, but that you reference them in your HTML or JSP files.   If that doesn't give you enough to go on, tell us what your directory structure looks like now and provide me with some of the HTML code that references .css files from one of the web pages that already exists.

I want to put it all in the root but if you look at the attached graphic, it is hard to tell where the root is. Is this the root of the src directory?

I will answer your other questions later today, thanks,

Forgive me but I don't see any attachments.  If you have one that shows the layout of your folder structure, and if you could paste the header part of one of the HTML or JSP pages in the app, I can help you.
