Issue 157

I'm at An Event Apart this week, talking about CSS Layout. While I'm still busy it seems as if life has slowed down a little with so many people on summer vacations, and taking time out. There are still some great things being published around layout however that I've been able to find for this week.

If you are enjoying a vacation right now or soon, have a great one!
