I don't dislike grids, I abhor them

If you use any grid 'system', you will end up using non-semantic html tags and id and class tokens. Further, grids are a print meme, equivalent to the print paste-up board; thus not amenable to flowing content nor to responsive UA widths.

Grid systems are best suited to assembly line houses where coders are not well versed in using well structured, semantic html. Nor does it require a knowledge of the cascade and inheritance, leading to bloated, nonsensical css files, files and more files. Stupid, but 'coders' are cheap when they don't need to know what they're doing or why.

cheers,

gary

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
