  <!-- ========================== -->

  <!-- Now you can customize the look of your sites. Each rule in the style tag changes the appearance of its associated element (notice how each rule names an element from the HTML body). -->
			NOTE: Commenting is a bit different in CSS. 
		  They start with forward-slash + asterisk 
		  and end with back-slash + asterisk.
