I don`t use the Auto-parser and also don`t recommend it to people
starting with TYPO3. It`s like creating websites with Dreamweaver in a
way. You can create pages but if something doesen`t work, you`ll still
have to dive into the HTML-sourcecode.

So you have to deal with TS anyway and I think it`s better to do it
right from the start to learn step by step and avoid frustration.

On the other hand the auto-paser could be more motivating as you might
have a result faster.

CSC is a pre-defined TS-template with lot`s of TS-objects you need for
creating a websites. The difference between CSC and the old content
default template is, that it has been created as a replacement for
content default to meet the current and future requirements of modern

With other words: it renders the things you enter in the backend.

CSC is shipped with an example stylesheet containing everything you
need. Copy the contents of this file into your own stylesheet and modify
it to suit your needs.
