I wanted to get some of your thoughts on the usage of the 960 grid system in a production environment. What are some of the pros and cons vs using custom css?
+1 True about that, couldn't put it better myself.What's your experience with CSS?
Some would argue that using a grid like 960gs or blueprint allows for quicker development and tight control of positioning. It is also easier IMO to use than a custom CSS layout.
Interesting, wasn't sure what level you were at before. From my experience 960 grid is good, though I can see it changing specifically due to mobile.I am very experienced with CSS, and can put together any custom design. I do all of my css by hand. I am a graphic designer and web designer, so I am very familiar with the grid system (although I admit it is a tool that I do not use all that often).
I'm working on the layout of a web application (mostly form based) do you think there will be benefit gains by using the 960gs, or will it end up being limiting in the end?
The application will be ever changing and developing based upon client needs and the layout of the various forms are quite varied. I'm not looking to use it as a visual guide for placement of the page elements.
