    yet still

    I don't understand the sentence: ..."yet still equally convinced". Why did the author used "yet" plus ""still". Don't these words have the same meaning? The narrator was convinced or not? Thanks.

    When I was about ten my mum told me the Hobbes of Calvin and Hobbes is spelled with an e. I was a teeny bit devastated and yet still equally convinced.
