Ethan 22 December 2010 Thanks for the feedback, all. Glad to hear my modest little primer was helpful to a few people. (And Relly: as someone who would yell “go sports team,” thank you!) Bruce, thanks so much for the input. I saw Tab’s essay well after I submitted this article for publication (thanks, universe), so I didn’t have a chance to incorporate his comments. Still, it’s really heartening to hear the W3C’s converging on a sensible syntax. And thanks for the link to Compass, Dira. I don’t use SASS myself, but I’m sure that framework would be handy for those that do.
