There are quite a few books on this subject and I have my favorite
three (in order of preference):
? CSS Mastery (http://www.cssmastery.com/), review can be found here:

css_mastery_advanced_web_standards_solutions_solutions_review/
? The Zen of CSS Design
? Bulletproof Web Design

You can use the layout folder for this. It’s explained in the Agile
Web D. book.

thanks for the links, will take a look at these and maybe get some.

In the mean time has anyone got any quick suggestions to get me going,
am I right in thinking placing a file scaffold.css in
public/stylesheets/ should automatically link in?

If you have a stylesheet tag in your layout file (rhtml), yes. If you
like to learn by example, you could look at the css files at http://
www.csszengarden.com/ The site shows you how the same HTML can be
rendered in any style using CSS both for formatting and positioning.
