A Complete CSS Template File

To help maintain consistency when developing new CSS-styled websites, we have created a complete CSS template file. The file contains every HTML/XHTML tag known to man. This includes tags such as BASEFONT and CENTER, which have been deprecated; tags such as COMMENT and MARQUEE, which are exclusive to Internet Explorer; tags such as SPACER and SERVER, which are exclusive to Netscape Navigator; and even tags such as !DOCTYPE and BASE, which are included merely for the sake of completeness. The CSS selectors are (almost all) empty, just waiting to be filled with declarations, properties, and values.

CSS Notes

Tags that have been deprecated, or that are exclusive to a specific browser, are indicated as such using the following syntax:

|x = deprecated
|e = explorer only
|n = navigator only

These symbols are written next to their associated tag/selector such as shown in the following examples:

basefont|x {}
marquee|e {}
spacer|n {}

Besides individual selectors, the template file also includes several common selector combinations such as various list selector combinations, image-link sets, and series sets like h1,...h6. Additionally, the skeleton.css file provides several common classes, such as .show, .hide, and .clear, and even includes the very popular and versatile .clearfix hack, which is actually like three or four hacks rolled into one. The file is a paltry 4KB in size and free for download via the link below. Leave the credit at the bottom of the file intact and you are free to use the contents in any way you see fit!

Note: This free CSS template file, skeleton.css, is a continually evolving resource. Please share any valuable insights or potential improvements. Thanks!

Thoughts
Mastodon social is a trip. Glad I found it.
As a strict rule, I never use cache plugins on any of my sites. They cause more problems than they solve, imho. Just not worth it.
Currently on a posting spree :)
