    Don't let my lack of oDesk experience make you believe I'm not capable of doing the Job. Why are 1,000s of oDesk hours that important, what you need takes time and dedication not oDesk hours. Give me the opportunity to prove myself, I won't let you down. I have a number of years experience with HTML and CSS and have been engaged in web research for much longer. I keep at a task until it's finished with high quality results. Your project(s) require personal dedication, something an applicant with 5 other on going projects can't deliver; no matter how many hours they have logged in the system or how great their feedback rating may appear. I won't let you down.
