How to use Apple’s new San Francisco font on a webpage

How to use the new affix plugin in twitter’s bootstrap 2.1.0?

I was having a similar problem, and I believe I found an improved solution. Don’t bother specifying data-offset-top in your HTML.

How to make a column span full width when a second column is not there? (CSS Grid)

Don’t define the columns explicitly with grid-template-columns. Make the columns implicit instead and then use grid-auto-columns to define their widths. This will allow the first column (.content) to consume all space in the row when the second column (.sidebar) doesn’t exist. .grid { display: grid; grid-auto-columns: 1fr 200px; } .content { grid-column: 1; } .sidebar … Read more

Build list of selectors with LESS

As already mentioned your attempt is almost there, it does not work because of variable visibility rules. Notice that each .selector-list iteration defines new @selector-list variable which have higher precedence in the current scope but does not override @selector-list variables for the outer scope (i.e. scopes of the previous .selector-list iterations and above). So when … Read more

How to link a CSS file from HTML file?

Why does linking a CSS file not work?
