In late 2006, A List Apart had an article about “Adaptive Layout“,
which they described as an improvement over liquid CSS layouts because it is optimized for multiple screen resolutions and adjusts automatically.
I was intrigued, so I decided to experiment with an adaptive blog template that automatically adjusts itself to different screen resolutions, from an iPhone to a 1920×1200 monitor.
The template could be improved by paying better attention to the most common browser resolutions and developing grid-based versions tailored to specific resolutions. I did the opposite — I started with the content and defined CSS rules to fit my text and images.
