Included features

This blueprint framework includes a set of features/techniques that represent the latest best-practices in CSS design, and consolidates a foundation for you to develop on top. Inside you will find:

  • Tableless design > A basic DIV based HTML structure, to serve as a base for your own structure, ready for an always-on-bottom footer, should you need it
  • Grids > A 24 column grid set, based on the 960 grid project
  • Typography definitions > A base definition of all typographic elements to help you get started
  • An HTML version > Ready for your local testing, with no need of a server (based on the same CSS)
