It is a multimedia world. People experience and interact with web content with a variety of media, ranging from large-screen projections of websites to hand-held devices. This presents specific challenges for web designers.
One of those challenges revolves around designing pages that are accessible, inviting, and functional at highly varying sizes. A page with centered content, sidebars on the left and the right, and text flowing around images may be inviting on a laptop, but a jumbled mess on an iPhone.
With the advent of HTML5 and CSS3, it is possible to design pages that detect the size of a viewing device (the viewport), and to present unique page layouts customized for that device. So, for example, you can create three alternative views of a page—one for smart phones, one for tablets, and one for full-sized monitors. The approach is referred to as responsive design. The CSS3 technique for implementing it is a Media Query.
In this article by David Karlins the author of Dreamweaver CS6 Mobile and Web Development with HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery Mobile, we'll learn to design pages in Dreamweaver that detect media viewports using Dreamweaver-generated Media Queries, and present appropriate page designs tailored to the visitor's viewing environment.
While doing that, we will:
Use Dreamweaver's Multiscreen Preview window to preview how sites will look in different viewports
Customize Multiscreen Preview for specific devices
Create multiple styles for differently sized viewing devices with Dreamweaver's Media Queries
