Getting JavaScript to Talk to CSS and Sass

The internet has been around for a long while, and over time we’ve changed the way we think about web design. Many old techniques and ways of doing things have gotten phased out as newer and better alternatives have been created, and we say that they have been deprecated. Deprecated.

Justin Duke asks if treating code comments like footnotes could help us understand the code in a file better. In his mockup, all the comments are hidden by default and require a click to reveal: What a neat idea! Justin’s design reminds me of the way that Instapaper treated inline footnotes.
