Nested Grids

I saw the article on nested grids entitled "Grids Anywhere". I noticed that the example featured multiple / different grid sets be nested, and it all worked fine. I seems like nesting the same grid should work similar, but it doesn't.

An example would be if I had a 12 column grid called d. in d6 I have nested d6 (.d6>.d6). I would expect it appear with a left margin using the parent grid as the wrapper. But instead it clears left and has no left margin, appearing where I would expect d1 (.d6>.d1) to appear.

Should I be using multiple / different grid sets each time I nest them such as in the example? Doesn't that cause more CSS?

    Nested a grid within itself is a bit tricky given how the CSS is set up, but I have added it to our bug queue to be resolved soon. You can read more about this issue here:

    Thanks again for the great suggestions.

    Specifically, we will look at some way that you can define whether you are nesting the grid, or the element on grid, using a class.
