    @stml @mildlydiverting I used one from goldtouch.com for years, which was very good. But noisy, as you might remember :)

    @kaelig @mattpointblank @patrickhamann Interesting, thanks. Seems like everyone has their own slight variations and combinations of ideas.

    @phl Very good.

    My fall at the pool this morning, my near WATERFALL, has ended up with me feeling a lot less AGILE. (sorry)

    @mattpointblank I hadn’t seen that, thanks! How have you found BEM vs SMACSS. If 140 chars is enough…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @alicebartlett :) But I want more rules! Do you have any guidelines for how people should name classes etc?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @jwheare i.e., use SASS or LESS to manage and combine the stylesheets and common variables etc. SMACSS or BEM to name classes.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @jwheare SMACSS, BEM are guidelines for naming classes etc. Kind of rigorous style guides. SASS&LESS are different and you’re missing out :)

    @Alby Yeah, I really liked that - both the explanation of the thought process and the final result.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @phl That someone would be me.

    So, CSS nerds! SMACSS, BEM, SUIT, something else? What’s your favourite attempt to make CSS more bearable?

    @whoisdanw Are you testing the distribution for William Gibson’s new book?

    @phil_wright I will bring harmony to the fractious world of invisible characters!

    @tomcoates @Zoonie Yes, you're right.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @tomcoates @Zoonie Yeah, I thought 1 was really quite bad. 2 was fine. You know, for a kids' show.

    First morning back at pool: slipped up, BANG flat on tiles. Thankfully, broke my fall with knee, elbow and ribs rather than head. Bruised.
