#HTML #quality and #CSS.

CSS can be very effective in exposing HTML issues. +Eric Meyer may have been the first to prominently show so with his Diagnostic CSS [1]. In my studies at +Google I developed the QA Style Sheet [2]. +Karl Groves, to name one more, created Diagnostic.css [3].

While all these style sheets are still useful, we can do more. For that purpose I’m looking for contributors and a new owner for the QA Style Sheet. If you’re interested in contributing or taking over, please let me know. (And yes, it can well move over to GitHub ;)

This development follows loose talks between Karl and me, a while back, on whether and how to join forces. We both appear caught up in our affairs, however, and I need to pick my battles more carefully. I recognized that work on the QA Style Sheet, even with Karl or Eric if they opted to, won’t be a priority for me for very long.

If you too believe that we can push CSS further as a diagnostics and quality tool, please come forward. There are no strings attached other than making a serious attempt. Comment here or send me a line through http://meiert.com/en/contact/. Cheers.

(Random CC my dear +Tony Ruscoe, +Zacky Ma, +Harry Roberts+Christian Heilmann+Vitaly Friedman—you guys may have a good eye for what we can do here, too.)

Does it make sense for us to keep this CSS community, given communities like https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/106425668610348127113 (now 5,000+ strong)? Thoughts?

Great presentation on improving CSS performance! GitHub's diff pages can be rather large, and some were taking ~30s to perform style recalculations... Yikes!

Check out the video, and you can find the slides at: https://speakerdeck.com/jonrohan/githubs-css-performance

Last but not least, CSS Explain looks like an awesome tool:
https://github.com/josh/css-explain (like SQL explain, but for CSS!)

A quick question about media queries: Why are they based on device/browser window widths rather than effective element width? From a component-based html/css model, that would make a lot more sense.

+Tab Atkins Jr. could probably post that here himself: #CSS 4? http://www.xanthir.com/b4Ko0.
