A bold proposal by Heydon to make the process of styling on the web less painful and more scalable. I think it’s got legs, but do we really need another three-letter initialism?

I’m a Google Manufacturing Robot and I Believe Humans Are Biologically Unfit to Have Jobs in Tech - McSweeney’s Internet Tendency
Normally a McSweeney’s piece elicits a wry chuckle, but this one had me in stitches.
Humans are also far more likely to “literally cannot right now.” I have never met an automaton that literally could not, though I have met some that theoretically would not and hypothetically might want to stop.

Ensure that your class names never go out of sync with your style declarations with this one simple trick:
Take any CSS rule you want to apply, replace : by -, and dots by -dot-, and you get the name of the corresponding universal css classname.
The only thing missing is immutability, so I would suggest also putting
!important after each declaration in the CSS. Voila! No more specificity battles.

Brilliant! Although it’s kind of like shooting fish in a barrel to make a Markov chain out of someone whose entire output is already one big Markov chain.

This is hilarious …for about two dozen people.
For everyone else, it’s as opaque as the rest of the standardisation process.

Funny because it’s true:
The thing I regret the most is how my class addiction affected my relationship with HTML.
