CSS Wizardry is the home of the infamous Harry Roberts. Harry is a well known speaker around the conference circuits and is the talented fellow behind InuitCSS.

The CSS is full compressed as you would expect and includes nomalize, and judging by the bubbling

@media

rules throughout the CSS file I can assume Harry is using a preprocessor of some kind for his CSS.

Strangely if you head over to the /work/ section the viewport is changed to

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, minimum-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0">
, but he goes further by inlining all the CSS for this page rather than making another request for a file or adding to the generic site styles.

There’s no jQuery to be seen, and in fact the only JS that I came across was for Google Analytics and Smooth Scroll 2.3 in the work section (but even that is printed in script tags rather than making another HTTP request).
