responsive design help
I have read the book "Responsive Web Design - By Ethan Marcotte". There I ahve learnt the forumla "target / context = result"
Those who have read the books, you saw that the main container at first got a width of "960px". But after converting it in percentage, Ethan set that as "90%". But actually, 90% is not equivalent to 960px.
Let us take out the following example:
My screen resolution is 1280x1024. Usually, my browser width in full screen is 1280px. Suppose that I want to design in 960px. So if I want to make it percentage, it would be
960 / 1280 = .75
Okay, now I suppose that my width is 90%, but what should be the "context" in the target / context formula? - as I need to mention the context in px's to get the rational percentage. It's surely not 960px.
