CSS code folding

The basic idea behind folding CSS code is to take advantage of its extremely flexible syntax. Manipulating the presentation of code enables designers to bring rich visual context to their stylesheets. Expanding, branching, and folding CSS in logical, useful ways improves the usability of the code itself.

Thoughtful post on code layout.

This HTML5 specification is like no other—It has been processed with you, the humble web developer, in mind.
The focus of this specification is readability and ease of access. Unlike the full HTML specification, this “web developer edition” removes information that only browser vendors need know.

A grumble can be rotated around a given element at any angle, all 360 degrees. Any distance can be specified. Any CSS style can be applied. There’s auto-magic size adjustment for use with localised text. FX queues for animating multiple grumbles. And it works in IE6+, and modern browsers.

Cute tooltip bubble.

Enter our jQuery Ajax Overlay plugin. It’s just over 300 lines of code and weighs in at 13kb (or 4kb when compressed). There’s also some corresponding CSS for styling the overlay itself.

Nice work from the The Guardian dev team.
