Recently, I’ve found myself migrating toward this “object” based syntax with my CSS classes. The farther I go down this path, the more I start to wonder if I’m actually moving away from semantics by describing the style (with classes like “wide” or “rounded”) in the markup. This applies to most of the popular grid systems out there also.

I’m not saying these tools (or concepts) shouldn’t be used. I’m just wondering how far my conscience will let me go before I begin having nightmares of Zeldman strangling me with inline styles…
