Theme 25 Responsive Grid Column Visualization

I have written a small CSS script that enables you to visualize the 12 column responsive grid in Oracle Application Express’s Theme 25. I used it during my presentation at KScope 13. You can download the CSS file here. Install the file on your webserver or upload it into your workspace and reference the file in your page template or page. You could reference the file directly from my server too using

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css">

in your template, or just as URL in the template or page’s CSS URLs property.

(I uploaded an enhanced version of the CSS after the suggestion from Patrick Wolf, to only show the grid columns when the developer clicks the "Show Grid" option in the Developer Toolbar. Thanks, Patrick. I should have thought of this myself.)
