HTML Responsive Web Design


What is Responsive Web Design?

Responsive Web Design makes your web page look good on all devices (desktops, tablets, and phones).

Note: A web page should look good, and be easy to use, regardless of the device!

    max-width: 300px;
    height: 300px;
    border: 1px solid black;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
