I am a fan of using css frameworks for rapid prototyping which make use of reusable classes similar to how you describe in this article. There is however a divide between designers, some saying the classes bloat markup and are un-semantic. I am happy to use these in personal projects where I can apply semantics through applying ID’s, but for a large-scale production website these reusable classes just won’t do.
I think for most, writing well formed, semantic HTML and CSS will be the order for the day when it comes to the day-to-day markup. This is a great tutorial but will be kept to the personal website where a playground for code is acceptable.
