CSS Best Practices

Something that I haven’t really seen anywhere is a collection of best practices for writing CSS. There most probably will be one soon, since Dave Shea has posted some initial CSS Best Practices and opened up for contributions. Great idea!

The first guidelines are good ones, though I haven’t seen IE/Mac choke when double quotes (aka inch marks or double primes) are used around file paths. Single quotes (aka foot marks or primes) do choke the poor thing.

    It is very easy to get good principals mixed with your own opinions though when it comes to talking about CSS-based design principles…
