extractCSS is an online tool which can extract ids, classes and inline styles from HTML document and output them as CSS stylesheet. All you have to do is to type or paste your HTML document and let extractCSS to do the rest for you!
In working on large, long running projects with dozens of developers, it is important that we all work in a unified way in order to, among other things:
- Keep stylesheets maintainable
- Keep code transparent and readable
- Keep stylesheets scalable
There are a variety of techniques we must employ in order to satisfy these goals.
The first part of this document will deal with syntax, formatting and CSS anatomy, the second part will deal with approach, mindframe and attitude toward writing and architecting CSS. Exciting, huh?

Converting a style sheet is a little more involved than using a global search and replace to convert left to right, and vice versa. While this may catch many of the things that need changing, it won’t catch all, and it could also introduce errors into the style sheet.
For example, I had selectors called .topleft and .bottomright in my style sheet. These, of course, shouldn’t be changed. There may also be occasional situations where you don’t want to change the direction of a particular block.
