This site is an interpretation of the US Web Design System (USWDS) 2.0. The purpose is to serve as a testing ground as well as providing examples for others to use. The initial ground rules are to stick with the USWDS as the foundation wherever possible, maximize accessibility and performance, and provide a professional design that will work for a wide range of websites. This is very much a work in progress and as features are added, links in the menu will be activated. I will also be posting information on my blog and as styles are extended, they will be available on Github.
