    Developing a site which displays correctly on diff. devices.

    Hi all,
    I have to develop a simple static website which should appear correctly on iPads and mobile phones also.
    I probably should be using a fluid layout.
    I am looking at the Smashing Mag article about this.
    I also saw some frameworks like Zurb
    But slightly confused on what I should be using actually and which is the easiest to use.
    Kindly help. Thanks a lot in advance..
    (I am sorry if I posted in the wrong section)

    You can built a site that responds to different devices like desktop, iPad and mobile just with HTML and CSS. A buzzphrase going around at the moment is responsive design. A key tool for this is the CSS @media rule. You can use JavaScript, but it's not really necessary.

    Thanks you for your reply, Ralph.
    Will a framework simplify the process in your opinion?
    Thanks again.

    Usually I would think of that as complicating the process, but I guess it depends on how experienced you are. I prefer to write code myself so I understand fully how it works. This mobile boilerplate by Andy Clarke might be of some interest to you:
