Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

We are building web applications and I'm a front-end developer. In my job, I often have questions about CSS architecture / what is the best way to organize CSS / HTML markup. Examples of these would be questions about SMACSS or other front-end architecture frameworks.

Is this topic appropriate for StackOverflow?

@mishik Hm, what? Code Review is for code reviews of working code, how would this fit on Code Review? – Yannis Jul 11 '13 at 8:44
One shows a way of how the code is currently organized -> Code Review SE suggests improvements. – mishik Jul 11 '13 at 8:48
@mishik Code architecture & organization != working code. – Yannis Jul 11 '13 at 8:50
Understood. Do I remove my comments? – mishik Jul 11 '13 at 8:59

Generally speaking, broad questions of the "what's the best way to do <foo>" variety don't really fit anywhere on Stack Exchange. They tend to attract primarily opinion based answers, and often get quickly closed.

Nevertheless, if your questions are specific enough and build around concretes problems you are trying to solve (and not just idle curiosity about "what's the best"), you should try asking them on Programmers. Programmers is Stack Overflow's subjective little sister, and questions on code structure, architecture and application design are perfectly on topic there.

Before you ask, please take some time to:

"Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a language for specifying the layout and presentation in general of XML documents (in particular HTML)." I am going to edit the crap out of that tag wiki. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jul 11 '13 at 9:09
"What's the best way to do <foo>" is mostly what UX Stack Exchange tackles so I do think there is a place for such questions. Only questions is, if there is any Stack Exchange suitable for such HTML / CSS questions. Still feel the nature of my question is out of place in programmers SE since HTML / CSS are not programming languages. – catandmouse Jul 12 '13 at 2:02
@catandmouse Depends on how specific <foo> is. "What is the best way to organize CSS / HTML markup" would certainly be off topic everywhere, that's not a question, it's an open ended discussion. – Yannis Jul 12 '13 at 2:14
