    The site refers to the grid system used in web design and not print.
    I recommend Ordering Disorder: Grid Principles for Web Design by Khoi Vinh and the Making and Breaking the Grid: A Graphic Design Layout Workshop

    or Grid Systems in Graphic Design - Josef Muller-Brockmann aka The Master which is essential.
    or The Elements Of Typographic Style - R. Bringhurst which is also essential.
    I know that in InDesign you can make any type of grid in a min, also theres Grid Calculator plugin that makes things even more easier. But... in my case i like to know what im doing, to understand the essence and then apply...Recently im working on some poster designs in illustrator,i figure my minimum type size, leading, how many rows, columns and stuff...put it all on paper, take my pencil and calculator out and do the math :D Grid is a wonderful thing :)
