Yesterday, I spent more time dealing with the getting floated page elements to look right than I care to admit. I am not kidding when I say that I found quantum mechanics more intuitive than I find CSS floats now.
Of course, I put more effort into studying quantum mechanics. And maybe there’s some similarity here – once you learn a few hairy rules and what they really mean, the weird results make sense.
That was more gripe-y than educational. I’ll post something meatier next time.
