Improving CSS With .LESS

Write regular CSS with your .NET apps, then add a few variables, mixins and nested rules. .less (pronounced dot-less) is a .NET port of the ruby LESS library ported by Christopher Owen, Erik van Brakel and Daniel Hoelbling.
LESS (and .LESS, by extension) is a parser that allows web developers to create style sheets using new and improved language features, including variables, operations, mixins, and nested rules. Behind the scenes, .LESS converts the enhanced CSS rules into standard CSS rules. This conversion can happen automatically and on-demand through the use of an HTTP Handler, or done manually as part of the build process. Moreover, .LESS can be configured to automatically minify the resulting CSS, saving bandwidth and making the end user's experience a snappier one.
This article at 4guysfromrolla shows how to get started using .LESS in your ASP.NET websites.
