The iMarc Boilerplate, much like the HTML5 Boilerplate or Twitter Bootstrap, is our starting point for new projects. It provides us with:
- Better, consistent defaults than what browsers use by themselves;
- Sharp, clean placeholders for styles on sites we can use until we've had a chance to restyle them;
- Clear, organized structure for our CSS going forward.
We wanted this file to be lighter than Twitter Bootstrap or the HTML5 Boilerplate and restructured in a way that was more fitting our mentality. Rather than layering our notions on top of one of these others, we wanted to take what we could from them create a base that fits us.
Best of all, we're releasing it on GitHub so its available to the community. You'll find more information on GitHub, as well as example markup and a separate page showing our document hierarchy and structure.
