Today I link to my own responsive web portfolio and present some screen captures, too, to show how the site responds to vastly different viewport characteristics.

A few sentences about media queries

Here are some very brief remarks for the uninitiated on media queries.

Media queries are a means to assign different CSS (cascading style sheet) rules to different devices and device characteristics, according to Stephen Bradley’s How To Use Media Queries For Device Targeting  (2011). Ben Frain, in Responsive Web Design Using HTML5 and CSS3 (2012, p. 89), writes that media queries limit the shortfalls of a fluid layout and a fluid layout eases the change from one set of defined styles within a media query to another.
