I have been out of the HTML game since CSS came on the scene, (yeah, that long.) and I need to develop it as a skill set. I could use some suggestions for reading material that'll get me there quickly. [more inside]

Is there any way that I can get guides to stay visible across *all* layers in Illustrator CS6, instead of disappearing when I turn layers off? I'd rather not replace them every time I add a new layer. My google-fu is failing due a bad combination of search terms that keeps returning tutorials. Thank you!

I'm writing a guide to sell to what I think is a pretty small target audience, probably consisting of maybe 25,000 people total with the percentage of potential buyers being very tiny. (Let us not ask why I'm writing for such a niche audience. Let us say that it is primarily
because I want to share the information, but I also want to earn something
for my work.) I am writing it so that each major section is self-contained and should be able to be sold separately, with the possibility of buying the full guide at a discount compared to buying each section individually. How can I best distribute this electronically? [more inside]

I have a time-sensitive travel decision to make, and it affects the entire substance of my trip. Can you help me decide on a course of action? [more inside]

I just started playing World of Warcraft again after two years. In short: I'm a total noob again and I'm starting to tank heroic dungeons and it is... messy. Noxxic seems pretty good for basic gear/stat information, and the in-game Dungeon Guides are nice, but they're really terrible for reading on the fly and don't actually include popular strategies. Is there a good place where I can learn how to tank Cataclysm Heroics or am I fated to drag poor strangers along on my very painful learning curve? I don't love sifting through dozens of YouTube videos, but videos would be helpful.

I'd prefer to not fall off a 50 ft cliff in New Zealand while skiing backcountry this August. Besides hiring (the very expensive) guides, how do we find volunteers willing to help us make it back to civilization each day in exchange for beer? [more inside]

How does a 40ish year old male with enough money find his way around Europe without foreign language skills? Is it possible to hire guides to travel with, or at least to show them around on a city-by-city basis for this sort of thing? I'm thinking specifically France, Spain, Italy. Willing to use University students or some other creative possibility.

What's with the little bumps on the F and J keys on my computer keyboard? Yes yes ... I know they are guides for touch-typing, but I'm sure
that when I was learning to type back in high school on electric typewriters (pre-computer days) the bumps were on D and K.
Am I mis-remembering this? Did they change, and if so, when? And did every typist go crazy when it happened?

I'm visiting Naples and the Amalfi coast over the winter break. I'll be there a week. I couldn't care less about when to go and how to get there or where to stay, because that's all taken care of. I'm looking for the best guidebook that emphasizes history, background and things to do. Good recommendations for places to eat would be a nice plus. What would you suggest? Right now my leading candidate is the Lonely Planet guide
, but in the past I've found they're not so hot on places to eat.

[CPA Study Filter]: So I have a choice between Bisk, MicroMash (PassMatrix), and Becker for study guides to the NJ/NY CPA, which one should I use? Also, if there’s a better one out there that I don’t know about, please inform. [more inside]

I've read "The Dangerous Book for Boys" and I generally love those kind of books (information about anything with guides on doing stuff). What other books are out there that are in a similar vein? I'm a 21-year-old girl but would rather not have a "girly" book.

TokyoFilter: I'm spending three days in Tokyo just before Christmas. I've never been before and I doubt I'll ever get there again, so I want to see what's important and skip the tourist traps. Any tips (including pre-trip reading)? I'll be solo so I can do what I like.

What is the best travel book series? You know -- Frommer's, Rough Guide, Fodor's, Lonely Planet, etc. I'm finally getting of my duff and going somwhere (Costa Rica) and I want a reliable guide book to take with me. Something that I will actually find quite useful and not rip it into shreds out of pure frustration.
