Hi David,

I've got a couple of questions.

* What does the declaration "font:7pt/7pt" do? Why the slash and double set
of numbers? Granted my knowledge is limited but I've never seen this before.

* If .breadcrumbs is {color:#333333;background:#cccccc;font:7pt/7pt 
Arial,Helvetica,Sans-Serif} -- Where are the declarations for .header?

 > Then in my HTML, I have a <div class="header"> and within 
 > that <div> is a class called 'breadcrumbs'.
