CSS Spa: A System for Parsing & Aggregation of Cascading Style Sheets
The CSS Spa has been created to assist designers with CSS management. After spidering a Web site’s CSS content, the CSS Spa follows a series of rules to accomplish this: enforcement of atomic separation; elimination of non-CSS style elements;
elimination of inline styles; normalization attributes and values; creation of new CSS “superclasses;” and finally removal of any unused CSS.
The CSS Spa tool was developed using PHP and MySQL, then tested on two sets of sites: three simple learning cases and three real-world Web sites. Each of these test sites represents a different CSS challenge: reliance on older HTML styles; heavy use of inline styles; and enhancement of an already-efficient design.
