Writing Clean CSS

The Steve Jobs twin obsessions with ease-of-use and beauty are fairly well known, especially when it comes to really odd details such as how the circuit board looks. Even when users will never be able to see it. Yet reading Lokesh Dhakar’s Squeaky Clean CSS has reminded me how important even the formatting of the source code of your web pages is, even if no user will ever see that, either.

Some of the tips I don’t agree with, such as keeping the closing brace indented, but for the most part it’s a really brief, well-written summary of how to keep your HTML and CSS comprehensible, even as your site grows and grows.
