Offloading JavaScript With Custom Properties

Heydon Pickering perfectly illustrates why it’s important to understand both CSS and JavaScript well.

If you ever wanted an illustration of benefit of a broad skillset, this post is it. There’s so much benefit in understanding how both CSS and JavaScript work and where each technology thrives.

Heydon’s write up illustrates another great example of Custom Properties being bloody useful too.

A must read.
