Best CSS framework for SEO

Everybody knows it is more flexible, better coding to write CSS yourself.

  • But is it more efficient?

I am very bad at coding CSS.

  • How can a grid help me out?
  • Which CSS Framework should I chose SEOwise?

I need a good control over the Font css.

The nominees are:

YUI framework:
+ Template columns are source-order independent, so you can put your most important content first in the markup layer for improved accessibility and search engine optimization (SEO).

- Does YUI framework provide us with semantic CSS?
