This covers it pretty well. Short form: "su" is "your"; suyo is "yours".

Which is better? "Está alto" or "es alto"? I was under the impression that it had to be "está" but DL gave me "es" as another suggested answer. Thanks for any replies :)

Ser is for permanent states or characteristics. He's a tall person. "Está alto." would be like seeing a kid after a long time and he's grown. Soy de los EEUU. I'll always be from the US, but estoy en Paraguay ahora.
