Responsive Design Class with HTML and CSS

Responsive Design has become a popular strategy for handling the growth in mobile devices. While an older web site may look spectacular when viewed on a desktop computer with a large screen, those same pages may be unreadable on a phone or difficult to view on a tablet or small screen. HTML5 and CSS3 provide the tools you need for responsive design to adapt a web page's appearance and layout to the viewing device. [More on Responsive Design]
