re: Reasons not to use IDs in CSS VIEW POST


Think of Darwin classification tree. Nodes are classes, leafs are ids. I have an ID and a Class. I have common properties of a human, but I have my own properties that nobody else has. So HTML names (and CSS selector shortcuts # and .) for these attributes makes perfect sense. Use class for Class and id for unique and only.***

***The only real issue is a legacy bug in JS that creates a global window variables that hold references to the elements with id attributes. But with most modern frameworks that is not a problem, since most of the time you work with VDOM, not DOM.
