Issue 283

Here we are at the last CSS Layout News of 2020. It's certainly been a year. I've been fortunate enough that, while my life has been somewhat turned upside down this year, I've not lost anyone close to me, or been sick myself with this dreadful virus. If you have not been so fortunate, I'm sorry.

I'll be back in 2021, hoping that things will turn the corner. Hoping that we'll be able to start meeting up in person again, working from coffee shops, and attending events. I'm going to have a bit more time to dedicate to all things CSS too. So watch this space!

With all best wishes for a happy and healthy 2021.
