First of all, when is the next adblock landmark release? v6, I suppose? I have version 5.x and have a couple suggestions. Look at nuke anything, I like its function, but it doesn't blacklist the removed items, so they come back on refresh. Could you devs add somthing like that, that lets you remove just about anything in a page (text, etc) and have it blacklist the removed item so that it doesn't display again?

Second of all, where can I learn to use CSS to block ads on other sites than google? There are some adservers using google style text ads, but I don't know how to block them.

The basic way to block text ads is by using either the class or ID in CSS. ID's are preceded with the # symbol and classes, have a . preceding them.

Code:

#adParts, #adHead, /* FoxNews */ 
.ad, #Table_01, /* Yahoo groups mail */
#k, #ymadbn /* Yahoo */
{
     display: none !important;
}


I use the extension 'Web Developer' to quickly acquire whether or not CSS will have an impact on these text ads. This functionality is located under the 'Information' button.

Are they google-like ads, or google ads? If they're google ads, just add *pagead* and *googlesyndication* to your block list. Googlesyndication will block all google ads on non-google pages (the ads on google pages are part of the page itself, and can only be removed with usercontent.css or a program like proxomitron). Pagead will also block google ads on non-google sites, and will also block many other text ads.
