Reminder of best practices for optimal use of the easiest HTML / CSS frameworks.

Common helpers

Add the .ir class to any element you are applying image-­rep­lac­ement to.
When replacing an element's content with an image, make sure to also set a specific backgr­oun­d-i­mage: url(pa­tht­oim­age.png);, width, and height so that your replac­ement image appears.
Add the .hidden class to any elements that you want to hide from all presen­tat­ions, including screen readers.
It could be an element that will be populated later with JavaScript or an element you will hide with JavaSc­ript. Do not use this for SEO keyword stuffing. That is just not cool.
Add the .visua­lly­hidden class to hide text from browsers but make it available for screen readers.
You can use this to hide text that is specific to screen readers but that other users should not see. About invisible content, Hiding content for access­ibi­lity, HTML5 Boiler­plate issue/­res­earch.
Add the .invisible class to any element you want to hide without affecting layout.

Adding .clearfix to an element will ensure that it always fully contains its floated children.
There have been many variants of the clearfix hack over the years, and there are other hacks that can also help you to contain floated children, but the HTML5 Boiler­plate currently uses the micro clearfix.
