    @prakash2187 Easy to do. I had a site not to long ago, needed 6 horizontal links, and I was using a 12 column grid. So each link got the class of grid_2, and they fell in line perfectly.

    [a href class=”grid_2″] link 1 [/a] …. etc.

    @waltdesignanddevelop oh i’m bad at design i never remember about multiple browsers. hence my one website that looks beautiful in firefox and a friggin box in IE 🙁 hopefully the new version will change all that.

    @shakaama I think it could be used for both, standardization and easy development for new designers. The 960 CSS Framework, or any other framework, should be easier for developers to make sites work better across multiple browsers, and work with standard browser sizes. Of course a good reset CSS file, which most frameworks include, helps a site support multiple browsers.

    ok after watching both and reading the website, it seems to me like not a standardization so much as an easy method to teach new designers how to make websites.
