comment What would prevent me from re-creating a missing /dev/null folder?
I'll restart in a few minutes- I'm worried that if there's a file system error, it will restart badly. This is weird - I looked at the data for another common DEV (mknod) folder - 'zero' and got this: $ ls -al /dev | grep zero crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 3, 3 Jan 20 11:29 zero // // so I just tried again with 'c 3 3' as the numeration on the command and it gave me the same error

yes - exactly! By all indications it should work - I just tried creating another folder "null2" like your example, and still get the "Illegal instruction" message. Now I'm investigating that message, specifically...

yeah - I'm thinking now that the mknod system folders aren't accessible via Finder - nor can I locate the contents of the folder with the terminal "locate" command

Here's something strange: in FINDER, there is a symlink to DEV, but if I try to follow it I get a "Dev can’t be opened because the original item can’t be found." symlink error. But in Terminal, cd dev takes me right there and I can browse the contents normally with ls, etc. I'm not sure where the DEV folder is located now...

ahh! That's good thinking! - they just specify "name" as a parameter. Shucks - I just tried it, and got the same Illegal Instruction message

I still get "Illegal Instruction" when I try: 'sudo mknod /dev/null c 3 2'

comment Dreamweaver, How to move only cited CSS from external stylesheet to internal
GREAT Aznfin - THANK YOU! I figured out to use Firebug, but I had no idea that the CSS USAGE EXTENSION was available - you've really helped a lot, many thanks! It's a great suggestion - take care, Jamison

comment Dreamweaver, How to move only cited CSS from external stylesheet to internal
Hi Wil- Thank you for looking at this. Actually, you're answer is very good but not exactly what I need! You see, I have an external stylesheet with thousands of entries, but only 10% of the code applies to the current page I'm working on! It's nearly impossible to manually go through the entire external sheet to find which CSS rules apply to my page, and which do not. For that reason, I wanted to know if there's a way to "import" only the relevant CSS rules from the external stylesheet, while ignoring all the rules that are not applied on this particular HTML page? Thank you!
