I’ve applied these same principles to my own design practices.

I’d like to say that makes sense to me, but I’m not understanding how this methodology is practical in a world of dynamic content? If I know exactly what’s going in a <p> tag, then sure, but what about when that text is loaded from a database and is highly variable?

And though this is design and not programming, I find that the “design for an interface, not an implementation” principle of programming is very helpful in this area as well. By looking at each and every element individually, it seems to me that this paradigm is not only thrown out the window, but also that the design process itself is going to be a lot more meticulous.
