A recent guest post over at Usability Post (by Tyler Tate) shows how to create a grid with your own CSS, 1KB of CSS to be precise.
Here is a fresh take on the CSS grid (loosely based on Nathan Smith’s 960 Grid System). Its mission is to be lightweight. And, as I’ll show in part 2, it can be used to streamline page templates for content management. All this in just one measly kilobyte (actually, 662 bytes, but who’s counting).
A few CSS rules and you have your own custom grid framework, which you can easily work the rest of your CSS around.
