    I think this is probably a learning curve for everyone. As any work you do involving multiple people, you should communicate what is to be done/expected.

    If you design a website and use a particular grid system, let the developer know, let them know the measurements you use, every detail to make sure it turns out the way you want it. This may slow down the work rate and things but if that's how it is to be so you're satisfied then so be it.

    Whenever I have felt something should be done just because, it's never been the case. You can never assume someone will just follow your design, people will always do what is most comfortable to them. I know I have so I didn't have to write some unnecessary CSS. I do it in my own designs and accept that what I design in photoshop isn't the final word just an idea.
