In SMACSS there are both major and minor layout rules that need to be created. The major layout rules are often handled by a grid framework and are used to describe big areas on your site, such as your Drupal regions. The minor rules are used for the components (for example how a picture aligns next to a paragraph of text). In this lesson we'll start by review how Sass allows us to use semantic naming for our CSS layout classes. Then we'll adapt the sample Sass provided by the 960 Compass Plugin so that it uses the necessary structure for our design.
By the end of this lesson, you will be able to implement the layout rules from your style guide as a Sass file using the 960 Compass Plugin as a reference.
