Ashley Kolodziej CSS-Tricks

A love letter to HTML & CSS  ↦

Ashley Kolodziej speaking directly to HTML:

You are the foundation of the Internet. You are the bridge between humans and information. When we say HTML isn’t an expertise in and of itself, when we take you for granted, we leave behind the people and systems who access that information using web crawlers and accessibility technology.

and CSS:

There is a time and place for specificity, and I cherish your ability to manage that. I love your system of overrides, of thinking ahead to what should and shouldn’t be modifiable by another developer easily. I find the appreciation of specificity and !important and contrast and all the beautiful little things you do well increasingly lost in the pursuit of the newest and shiniest frameworks.

A lovely love letter to two of my favorite technologies. 💚
