Debating Progressive Enhancement
"Don’t make up your mind about Progressive Enhancement by reading reductive blog posts or presentations that gloss over or outright ignore the details and nuances of actual web work. Read up on the individual tactics used. Judge them in terms of how effective they might be at solving the problems you are tackling. Every tactic strikes a different balance. Unless you plan on only solving one kind of problem, again and again, throughout your career, you owe it to yourself to study the tactics that lie outside your comfort zone."

The Battle for the Body Field
"As we attempt to combine multi-device design requirements with complex, media-rich narratives, we’ve hit the wall. The chunky, fields-and-templates approach we’ve developed can’t save us from the mismatch between our content and HTML’s descriptive tools. The good news is we don’t have to convert all our projects to XML to learn from the XML community’s wisdom. By using custom elements and properties to represent content’s meaning, transforming it into HTML on output, and ensuring that editing tools share the same vocabulary, we can publish structured content that supports the needs of today’s editors and art directors while also making our content safe for future generations."

A Dao of Web Design
"Web designers often bemoan the malleable nature of the web, which seems to defy our efforts at strict control over layout and typography. But maybe the problem is not the web. Maybe the problem is us. John Allsopp looks at web design through the prism of the Tao Te Ching, and decides that designers should let the web be the web."

Quantity Queries for CSS
Dynamic content Responsive web design is primarily concerned with one variable: space. In testing responsive layouts, we take an amount of content and see which spaces it will successfully fit into. The content is deemed constant; the space, variable. The @media query is the darling of responsive web design because it allows us to insert “breakpoints” wherever one layout strategy ceases to be viable and another should succeed it. However, it’s not just viewport dimensions, but the quantity of content that can put pressure on space. Just as your end users are liable to operate devices with a multitude of different screen sizes, your content editors are liable to add and remove content. That’s what content management systems are for.
