Babel is required to process package imports. If you need a different preprocessor remove all packages first.

                <p>Building your new PC is a 'step-by-step'-affair. For it to end with the 'excellent PC' you had in mind, starts with a few simple yet important basic rules that will guide you through this all.</p>
<h3>The Basics</h3>
 	<li>Work slowly and meticulously</li>
  <li>Take your time</li>
<p>Slow and <strong>'Correct first time around'</strong> is the goal we want to achieve.
Fixing problems 'after the fact' is usually complicated and a very slow process that is also very stressful. That's why <em>slowly but surely</em> is very much the preferred option.</p>

<ol start="3">
 	<li><strong>RTFM</strong>: READ the F*ing Manual[s] / instructions</li>
<p>READ the <em>INSTRUCTIONS / manual</em> <strong>BEFORE</strong> every step
By that I don't mean you'll need to read the entire thing back to back. Skip the obligatory 'safety regulations etc. telling you not to not to put your parts in water etc. Just <strong>read the important bits.</strong></p>

<ol start="4">
 	<li><strong>Get ALL of the required parts</strong> as mentioned in the instructions for the [next] step</li>
 	<li><strong>'Dry fit' the part </strong>if you can
    <p>To make sure you 'get it right', get every part you need for the stepout of it's box / wrappings and check.
    See <strong>where</strong> they should fit and <em>HOW</em> they would fit.
      Check things like</p>
      <li><strong>Location</strong>: where does the part go..?</li>
      <li><strong>Orientation</strong>: how does it fit? You may need to turn it around to make things fit correctly!</li>
 	<li>Place, Complete an Check</li>

<h3>Carefully put the part in its place.</h3>
All parts, when put in the right place, and oriented correctly will 'snap into place' sometimes with <em><strong>some</strong> </em>force but <strong>without 'forcing things into place'.</strong>  When you feel the need to use a lot of force, you probably got something wrong! Check again and / or ask advice!
First Complete then Check every step. Use your manual / instructions before, during and after the completion of every step.
<blockquote>Get it right first time? >> Celebrate!!
Spot a problem? >> Celebrate: you just saved yourself a lot of troubles!!</blockquote>
