    Brilliant web presentation. A lot of thinking went into this.

    The Guardian website is my home page.

    Spent all day looking at this today. Very in-depth insight to web design. Can't say I understand half of it but very interesting and it's given me some new ideas. Thanks for sharing

    Yes, very interesting link. The funny thing is that it took reading about their design rules to actually experience the order they create in browsing their website. Perhaps that's why they created this meta site and made available to the public.

    Very interesting and nice presentation of it all. I see they use 20px gutters, I've been using 15px as a rule of thumb minimum to space between elements but think I'll use 20px min going forward. Nice to see how they use the different colour palettes for the different sections too.
