If you ever wondered what makes a CSS framework a solid web design tool, then you may realize that it must provide a well-trusted set of style resetting classes and a clean background grid, plus the ability to quickly style common HTML elements in different ways, such as headers and paragraphs, lists and links, forms and tables, and so forth.
Fortunately, nowadays there's a group of CSS frameworks that suit most of these requirements. This list includes BlueTrip, which claims to put together the best features offered by BluePrint CSS and Tripoli (hence its name). So, if you're a web designer who's searching for a comprehensive guide that shows you how to work with this popular CSS framework, then this group of articles might be the material that you need.
