<h2>The Beauty in <abbr>CSS</abbr> Design</h2>
<p>A demonstration of what can be accomplished with only 1 <abbr title="Kibibyte">K</abbr> (<dfn title="1024 bytes">Kibibyte</dfn>) of <abbr>CSS</abbr>. Select any design from the list to load it into this page.</p>
<h2>So What is This About?</h2>
<p>Back in 2003 (that's 8 years ago!) <a href="">Dave Shea</a> launched the <a href=""><cite><abbr>CSS</abbr> Zen Garden</cite></a>. It showcased what was possible with <abbr>CSS</abbr>-based designs, leading to an explosion in the use of CSS on the web. More recently, <a href="">Peter van der Zee</a> created <a href="">JS1k</a>, a competition to build cool applications with no more than 1 <abbr>K</abbr> of JavaScript.</p>
<p>At lot has happened since the Zen Garden days, and today you can do almost anything with only <abbr>CSS</abbr>. As <abbr>CSS</abbr> use is growing, so is the average <abbr>CSS</abbr> file size. Popular sites have in average <a href="">27 <abbr>K</abbr> of <abbr>CSS</abbr></a>, but some use up to a megabyte of style sheets!</p>
<p>Do we need that much? <b>CSS1K</b> invites you to show that web developers are more inventive than ever, and that limitations can sparkle creativity.</p>
<li>Submissions must consist of only <abbr>CSS</abbr>
<li>Submissions may be up to 1 <abbr title="Kibibyte">K</abbr> (1024 bytes) minified
<li>Vendor prefixes are <em>not</em> counted to the total number of bytes &ndash; submit your code unprefixed and we will add necesssary prefixes
<li>Any external resources and images, including <code>data</code> <abbr>URI</abbr>'s, <code>@font-face</code> and <code>@import</code>'s, are forbidden
<li>The page <a href="">does not</a> have to look the same in every browser, but graceful degradation is encouraged
<li>The submitted code is licensed under the <a href="">MIT License</a>
