the RED should be 1200px...
We’ve used a max-width of 1200px. It’s a fairly arbitrary figure, but that’s what
Bootstrap considers the width of a large desktop device, and it allows us to show
us what happens when the browser window is wider than our max-width. Bootstrap
uses a 980px breakpoint as its “desktop” width, and 1200px as its “large desktop”
breakpoint. Anything larger than 980px will stop Bootstrap from behaving fluidly;
we want our content to flow, but we also want to stop that flow when the application’s
viewport is too wide to be easily read. And the 96% width ensures that there’s
a gutter around all the content, and allows for the original design having the
Speaker content all the way out to the edges of their blocks.
