Series Summary: Obsessive CSS Code Formatting
My favorite series of articles here at Perishable Press, the “Obsessive CSS Code Formatting” articles explore the esoteric minutia involved with producing clean, well-formatted CSS code.
From indention and spacing to opening and closing brackets, the obsessive CSS code series explores techniques and tricks used to transform ordinary stylesheets into streamlined masterpieces of inspiring beauty. Creating poetic CSS integrates the high art of employing consistent coding patterns and formatting methods with the practical functionality of proper syntax, logical structure, and concise delivery.

I still get occasional emails telling me about new comments on this series, even though the first article was published nearly two years ago–indeed, that’s what made me come back to take a peek at the new comments. Obviously you struck a chord in the web development community, so a job well done I should say.
Thanks Jordan. I was extremely inspired when I wrote this series, as the topic is something I spend a lot of time thinking about. My technique has evolved quite a bit over the past couple of years, and I am putting together ideas for another series that will explore CSS formatting in even greater depth. Thanks for dropping by – it’s great to (virtually) see you again.
