NC for Hire

If you add and subtract CSS styles from your network frequently, you might wanna frequent this site/tool.  Enter the CSS Trashman

The CSS Ratiocinator Trashman automatically refactors your CSS and generates a new stylesheet for your site. It works by examining your site's live DOM in the browser and reverse engineering a new, more elegant definition that captures styles down to the pixel.

It addresses the problem of old CSS whose styles accumulate and contradict each other. After a certain point all CSS seems to grow only by internal antagonism. The Ratiocinator wipes the slate clean and provides a harmonious new beginning.

Usage

The easiest way is to use the web interface csstrashman.com.
