960 Grid Systems
Useful idea for fast prototyping of HTML pages with a grid layout. Because of the consistent way the grid columns are setup the resulting layout will be clear and consistent. I don't like the restriction of a maximum width of 960 pixels, but for prototyping it can be good. The download also contains templates files for example Photoshop and a PDF with pages we can use for sketching.

The search box of Apple's site looks really nice. When we type in characters we can immediately see search results with images and explanatory text.
