There are a lot of ways to deal with designing for multiple screens and devices, and all are not created equal. Just because you end up with a site that's responsive doesn't mean you took the 'right' path to get there; the ends don't always justify the means.

It's a challenge, but hey - if it were easy, we could just use WordPress.
