They are good "frameworks" for starting css intense web projects Wink

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.

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 thumbs up
