Ah yes, it's one of the CSS frameworks that were reviewed in .net magazine (UK)'s framework roundup, a few months ago.
I've never "got" the point of CSS frameworks, really. And even less the point in using a grid system for forum layouts, so... Basically it's a non-issue for me.
I find it actually funny that there are actually people pushing for the return of styled table layouts now[1].

There is an argument for semanticising the layout, but it's not a strong one. This 'tableless' brouhaha is mostly that, because people apply the notion that tableless means not using tables when it's actually inappropriate to do so.

I'm of the school of 'whatever works'. And if themers want to go the whole tableless route, fine, but don't come crying when the core layout isn't totally tableless because that is actually insane.
