Whenever I start a new project, I seem to be repeating myself when it comes to adding, and styling basic content: Headers, Lists and Tables etc.
So I decided to create a ‘Kitchen Sink’ of markup and basic styling, using some content from the great HTML-Ipsum.com plus a few extra bits.
If you don’t currently use something like this already, I do urge to add it to your next new website, because even if you don’t include a table, or list at the moment, you (or your client via WYSIWYG) may do in the future.
The document is actually HTML5 and UTF-8, but you can copy and paste the HTML/CSS however you like. I also tend to add a reset style inside a global stylesheet to save downloading two documents. I’d love hear how you layout or comment your CSS and whether you split them into different files such as layout and typography too.
Note: If you have any additional code or CSS which you think should go into the document, add a comment below. Thanks.
