    @Ben, "I wonder if one could use it to make buttons "bigger" on devices that are not finely-pointer'd." Lol, that is exactly why it was invented in the first place. So you can do stuff like that :) "CSS Grid, I just recently started playing with it for the first time. Loo... read more »

    @Ben, Sorry I meant @media (pointer: fine) { ... }, not @supports. It detects if you are using a device with a highly accurate pointer like a mouse or a stylus pen. @media (pointer:coarse;) {...} is the opposite, detecting low accuracy pointers like touch screens and motion controls. @media (hover... read more »

    @Ben, Hmmm... right, yeah that's a good point. That's a tricky puzzle.

The 20px nudge won't work properly on touch devices though si... read more »

    It's not that hard to create a more fixed position like experience but you will need to change your html. Use the html and css from your second example except move the <span.box> elements out of the <div.viewport-wrapper> element so that they are direct children of the <div.viewport-... read more »

    Interesting technique. You could avoid the need for empty spans altogether though by applying the spacer code to `.wrapper:before` and `.wrapper:after`. I think this would be even easier using CSS Grid though. Add a .inner-wrapper around the 2 content elements. ```` .wrapper { display: grid; grid-... read more »
