No-Class CSS Frameworks

I linked up Water.css not long ago as an interesting sort of CSS framework. No classes. No <h2 class="is-title">. You just use semantic HTML and get styles. Is that going to “scale” very far? Probably not, but it sure is handy for styling things quickly, where — of course — you’re writing semantic HTML but don’t need to care tremendously about the look, other than it should look as decent as it can with low effort.

This week I saw MVP.css making the rounds. Same idea. There are a bunch more!

Even Foundation, while being a big honkin’ framework, does some pretty decent stuff classless-ly™.
