Style guide

A guide to the mark-up styles and patterns used throughout the site.

This site has long featured a style guide (or more precisely, pattern library), though it has rarely documented the full extent of the patterns utilised. This guide documents the vast majority of patterns used, grouped by their method of implementation:

Scopes
Areas of user-generated or third-party content.
Utilities
Reusable classes with a single purpose and specific role.
Components
Finite, discrete, implementation-specific parts of the interface.
