    I’m feeling free to point to a little book on the matter, The Little Book of HTML/CSS Frameworks. (It’s free, so I hope that’s fair.)

    Why I’m bringing this up is to encourage more discussion around the concept of tailoring, which I deem critical for professional, especially commercial, websites. Tailoring is something that gets mentioned far too infrequently. That there may be good arguments for other approaches is exactly motivation then to encourage conversations. (I’ll subscribe to comments here but mean this more in a sense of industry debate.)
