    It looks good on my iPhone. The elements are resized and centered.

    Banner is at top.
    Block quote.
    page title
    image
    menu
    footer

    You can simulate this by resizing your browser window. The page is not flowing properly when it is resized on my desktop browser. If you are detecting mobile devices and swapping style sheets, you do not have to do that with responsive design. You only need to detect the width of the display device. A true responsive design does not care what the device is.

    I use Genesis Framework themes for WordPress responsive designs. You might want to take a look at the CSS code for some of those themes. They use separate blocks of CSS code for different display widths. There are demos on the StudioPress.com site.

    Thanks for testing TD.

    Not sure what you mean here.

    If you are detecting mobile devices and swapping style sheets
    Nope, no switching of style sheets. I don't care about particular devices.

    Good for you, I prefer to develop my own CSS and HTML5 code.

    Hit that little double-box button in the top corner of your browser so you can manually resize the browser window. You should see a fluid responsive design flow and the elements resize as the browser windows gets smaller. Some of the web page objects, such as the block quote, title and image, are not resizing. Everything looks fine in my iPhone, but you should be able to see all of this taking place as you reduce the width of the browser window.

    I did not infer that you should use the Genesis Framework themes. I suggested that you look at the CSS code to see if you can improve your code. The newer default themes that come with WordPress do it the same way.

    If a web page does not actively adjust for all viewing device widths, you will likely run into issues with some devices.

    Nonetheless, I did check it with my Kindle Fire. It looks like it displays properly there, as well.

    It looks good on my Droid Incredible 1 with the stock browser. It appears to be a standard mobile version of a website.
