  • Sensible typography
  • A typographic baseline
  • Perfected CSS reset
  • A stylesheet for printing
  • No bloat of any kind

Planned features
  • Support for PNG transparency in IE5.5+ (js)
  • Relative font sizing everywhere
  • Multiple versions with different grid customizations
  • Liquid layout version
  • Compressed versions of the files to reduce load times

nice..  ;D .. yahoo also has some thing similar in The Yahoo! User Interface Library (YUI)

Reset CSS
Base CSS
Fonts CSS
Grids CSS

They are good "frameworks" for starting css intense web projects ;)

The *problem* I see with the YahooUI system is that there are too many options, too many selections.
I've been using Blueprint for 2 weeks now, and it has significantly aided me in my site restructuring.

I went with YUI about a month ago, and I was just overwhelmed.
As an aspiring web developer/designer, it is a constant struggle to cope with my ADHD + Hypomania/Bipolar Disorder.

The slow growth of my web dev projects is eclipsed by my patience, understanding and desire to learn AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE as I slowly progress.

Blueprint is now in version 0.5.

While there is some room for improvement (mainly to do with forms and typography, IMO) I think this is an excellent CSS framework! CSS has frustrated me a lot, but Blueprint has brought a lot of sense to it for me.

Highly recommended :up:
