      multiple CSS and html templates

      In reply to Developing a CSS strategy

      Like you, I use multiple CSS files, usually three. One that removes/sets standard browser defaults to aid with cross-browser compatibility. Another that controls page layout, such as headers, navigation area(s), content area, and footers. And one other that sets the various styles throughout the document, such as font-style, link attributes, and whatever else seems to be applicable.

      Also, I document within the stylesheet, what all the css does.

      I have created several html and css templates that I use with different projects without needing to rewrite all the css or basic html.

      Works great.
