I found this post on Jens Meiert's blog today: HTML/CSS Frameworks: Useful, Universal, Usable, Unobtrusive and I really enjoyed it. I've been looking more deeply into HTML/CSS frameworks for a while now, and honestly, I hadn't found any that really met my needs. And I think a large part of that is because many of them don't meet the criteria that Jens outlines. He recommends that they be:
Most of the ones I've looked at are either not useful to me or not usable because I couldn't figure them out quickly. From my perspective, unless it's immediately obvious how a framework is going to help me improve my site designs and speed of delivery, the tool needs to be so easy to use that I can muddle through for a while until I figure it out.
Are there any frameworks that you use regularly? Do you think that they meet the criteria Jens outlined?
