I need some help, what is the difference between:
table.module

Specificity: 0,0,1,1

and
.module

Specificity: 0,0,1,0

Is table.module just more specific or is there more going on?

The former will only select tables with the class name "module". The latter will select any element with the class name "module".

e.g.
<table class="module">
<p class="module">
<div class="module>
<em class="module">

They will all be selected by .module, but only the table will be selected by table.module

Similar question between:
a.contentpagetitle:link

Specificity: 0,0,2,1

That will select
<a href="#" class="contentpagetitle">link</a>

and
.contentpagetitle a:link

Specificity is the same, but will select differently:

<p class="contentpagetitle">
  <a href="#">link</a>
</p>

(The <p> element could be any ancestor element)
