AM – Attribute Modules for CSS

Glen Maddern:

Attribute Modules (AM) is a technique for using HTML attributes and their values rather than classes for styling elements. In doing so, each attribute effectively declares a separate namespace for encapsulating style information, resulting in more readable and maintainable HTML & CSS.

A super interesting concept developed by 3 talented individuals. Looking forward to digging into it a little further.
