Responsive web page layout by display size
Feel the Width
Make your blog look good on both desktop monitors and modern smartphones with high-resolution graphics by adding CSS and media queries to change the layout on the fly.
The visuals of my USArundbrief.com blog reveal that the page layout has more than 10 years under its belt. They say that fashion trends return to the catwalk every 30 years, but I think it is unlikely that my web design will be en vogue any time soon.
I created the website back then with the Perl Template Toolkit, strictly separating the content (now on GitHub ) from the layout. It should not be difficult to put the site through a radical design change now.
Beyond colorful boxes with round corners and other frippery, good web design is characterized today by the ability to read content just as easily on the small screen of a cellphone as on a "thundering" desktop display  (Figure 1). Some site operators handle these disparate formats by creating special mobile sites to which they direct the browser once the user agent header indicates that the user is currently staring at a tiny display. The mobile pages then streamline the optical layout and omit navigation elements that users would find difficult to activate on a smartphone.
