960 Grid System

The 960 Grid System was created by Nathan Smith as a way to streamline web development workflow by providing commonly used dimensions, based on a width of 960 pixels.

The 960.gs (or any CSS framework) was primarily developed for rapid prototyping, cutting down on repetitive and tedious tasks, but is also more than suited to be used for any web design project.

It will give your site a structured and solid foundation for you to build and style your design upon.

In this article http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/05/the-960-grid-system-toolbox-and-resources/, you’ll find tutorials, a showcase of sites designed using the 960.gs, spin offs, basic WP themes built on the 960.gs and possible alternative frameworks, if for some reason you don’t like the 960 grid system.
