Using a CSS framework can allow you to speed up your development time, normalize your code base, and avoid some common browser bugs. In this talk I will discuss when it is appropriate to use a framework, potential pitfalls of common frameworks, how the Yahoo User Interface (YUI) Grids system has been implemented in the default installation of the VuFind software, and demonstrate the creation of a 3 column CSS layout from scratch in under 5 minutes.
