Why Use Responsive Web Design:
Now that the mobile phone has taken off, it is important that your site be able to be functional on a variety of different devices. The point behind responsive web design is that it can work for all devices at all resolutions. There are about a lot of different resolutions that devices use, and it would be nearly impossible to create the website for each and every resolution. That is where responsive web design comes in. Responsive web design is an approach to designing a website that responds to the users behavior and environment. Some examples are detecting which device they are on or their screen size. This makes the website respond to them which would then eliminate the need for many versions of the same site. (Smashingmagazine)
So how do you do this responsive web design? Well for starters, you use media queries. With some HTML you can set it up to where it has a minimum or maximum screen size, and if the device is within that range it can link to a different style sheet. However, you are not limited to using just the HTML , you can even set these media queries up in your CSS3 style-sheets, you can set them up just in your CSS3 code if you please. So in general you would just have to set up the media queries and set up style-sheets for each version of your site. I hope that you look forward to having your website work on any device or screen size. (Alistapart)
