i use the photoshop file but only dabbled with the html/css selectors, it just doesn’t feel natural to me.

the main argument against it is that it’s not very descriptive, but i disagree because you can still give your divs id names as well as the 960 classes. I dunno, it just never seems to work for me thats all.

i imagine it is a timesaver and i know some authors are already using it.

I’ve just started using for my psd, it’s a good guide but I don’t think I’ll be using it when I’m coding.

Yes. It is worth a at least taking it for a spin. See if it works for you. I use it, not exclusively but a fair amount. it is a solid system.

As many said, You can use the psd include here http://bitbucket.org/nathansmith/960-grid-system/downloads/ to align your design in photoshop. Although 960gs is a good start point for most projects but it is not a solid system.

Take a look at the article on tutsplus

Adam Hawkins has a great article that goes through designing a site using 960gs

http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/html-css-techniques/prototyping-with-the-grid-960-css-framework/

He also explains the shortfalls of 960gs
