HTML5-Powered CSS Framework: Less

Less Framework is a lightweight CSS framework for building flexible multi-column website layouts.
It contains an eight-column grid optimized for a line-height of 24px & a set of typography presets based on the golden ratio which is parallel to the grid’s vertical rhythm.



Web pages created with the framework collapse smartly into a single column in modern browsers & on small screens.
Less Framework uses the HTML5 enabling script by Remy Sharp & optionally there is a JavaScript function provided (requires jQuery) included which mimics the function of min-device-width for browsers that do not support it.
