is there a page which shows what each css rule means within the spry widgets?

example,
what does 'ul' and 'li' mean in ul.menubarhorizontal ul li?
what things in the widget does the above rule control?

something like that exist?

'ul' refers to the HTML element UL. You need to know HTML in order to use CSS.

it would be nice however to get a dummies explanation for each of the spry elements in their corespondnig CSS files (the comments within don't really explain what part of the spry widget is changed). like what parts of the menubar change when you muck around with the 'ul.menubarhorizontal ul li' rule.

UL means unordered list and li means list

I think it was since last version they added the references. But how would you know how to markup the rest of your document if you don't know HTML? :) Take some time to learn markup, it's not that hard, basically find the right semantical element to mark your content with.
