  • Konquerer 3.4+
  • Safari 1.2+
    …and won’t work in IE due to missing support for outline


author: Created by Franz Josef Kaiser say hello code!


  • Make a copy of debug.html and give it a unique name for your test (for example, debug-test1.html)
  • Adjust the of this debug environment page to your needs:
  • Uncomment the plugins you want to use in your page.
    • optional only needed for the mailing list: describe your goals, trials & errors in the head container.
  • Add your basic html structure (div, h1-h6, p, span, a).
  • Add some “lorem ipsum” dummy text and sample IMGs to your html (search for lorem ipsum, there are lots of resources).
  • Add your Blueprint classes to the structure.
  • Uncomment the css/html debugger stylesheet in the head.
  • Open the sample in your browser.
    • optional if you see elements outlined, you’ve forgotten declarations or added bad classes. In this case take a look at the head of the debugger plugin to check color codes & find out what exactly went wrong (it’s easy).
  • Basic structure: done
  • Now you can add your own styles in a separate stylesheet to the section and develop further.
